Currently, I work as the Video and Digital Content Specialist at MIT Project Manus, a project of the MIT Innovation Initiative. I am responsible for the creation of video and other digital and print content for Project Manus, MIT’s effort to upgrade campus makerspaces and foster maker communities among students, faculty and staff. My responsibilities include creating professional videos for marketing, student training and fund-raising purposes; designing a variety of digital and print assets and layouts from start to completion; managing social media channels for MIT Project Manus; sourcing and coordinating production projects with vendors; capturing Project Manus' and MIT student work through in-house photography and videography; maintaining an assets library for digital/print projects, presentations, or special events. I am also the web designer and webmaster for the Project Manus homepage, the Make Impact Consortium, and more.
Prior to MIT, I was the Assistant Director of Multimedia Strategy and Production at Peddie School in Hightstown, New Jersey, where I oversaw and produced the school's multimedia output (film, photography and design). I produced promotional films for the school, documented school life in photography and moving images and worked in advertising the Peddie brand in print and digital applications. Previously, I taught Photography, Filmmaking and Graphic Design at a private high school in Saxtons River, Vermont called Vermont Academy.
I am an experienced creative and an expert in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere, Adobe InDesign and After Effects. I also have expert skills with Final Cut Pro X, Squarespace, WordPress, email marketing services like MailChimp and more.
I also record music and work with Ableton Live and Logic Pro.
