My lifelong passion for the moving image began not in the realms of criticism and teaching, but in media production. I received my undergraduate degree in the production-centric Film and the Electronic Arts Department at Bard College in 2007. I have professional experience in video production that stretches from freelance work around my hometown I began doing in 1998 at the age of thirteen, to postproduction work on digitally-shot feature films and gallery-based video art following my undergraduate education. Alongside contract work, I produced a steady stream of creative output throughout the 2000s. Embedded here are a few highlights of my creative output over the years; a wider selection can be found on my Vimeo page.
