My digital video art is shot and processed solely on my iPhone and reflects a compilation of observations from here, there and everywhere. I utilize social media platforms to share these brief digital anecdotes primarily in Story formats. Posting online these moving images, often silent, sometime with just found sound, I aim to capture everyday experiences whether at home (#outmywindow) or traveling (#ontheroad).

My research at the WSRC focuses on documentary filmmaking and digital media. I have a background in broadcast journalism and an MA in Mass Communication from Emerson College.
