I am an environmental enthusiast, multimedia professional and arts educator living and working between Baltimore and DC.

My teaching experience includes undergraduate and graduate instruction in digital design, photography, and video within American University’s School of Communication where I began working as an adjunct professor in Spring 2022. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with talented and enthusiastic groups of college-bound high school students as part of the Discover the World of Communication summer program where I’ve spent several summers leading introductory, week-long workshops in animation.

I am a co-producer for the Center for Environmental Filmmaking project “Upstream, Downriver” and previously served as an associate producer for the Maryland Public Television program “After the Storm: Pollution in the Potomac”. As an independent contractor, I have had the privilege of partnering with the National Park Service, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Potomac Riverkeeper Network among others.


As a co-researcher for the Center for Media & Social Impact, I helped engage the documentary filmmaking field in conversations around ethics and accountability including public speaking engagements at the Based on a True Story Conference, the Double Exposure Film Festival, and the annual conference of the University Film & Video Association.
