employment


ViDCo, Video Designer, 2021 - Present

I invent new digital performances as a custom content designer and general video wizard at Jared Mezzocchi’s digital design collective ViDCo. If you’ve grown incredibly tired of ‘Zoom theatre,’ don’t worry - these ain’t your geriatric artistic director’s Zoom plays. Selected credits include AIRVENGERS with ARS NOVA and work with Red Eagle Soaring.

University of Michigan Museum of Art, Motion Designer and Video Editor, Sept. 2020 - Present

I create original motion graphics and design bespoke animation and video content to suit a wide range of museum purposes. Audiences and content forums range from digital social media channels to exhibition displays and infographic content; all of which I activate with unique and compelling motion that draws in the eye and only occasionally distracts from the actual art.

Theatre503, Intern, Summer 2016

I worked for premiere new-writing focused Theatre503 in London near Battersea Park as an intern. My focus was on migrating website content and assisting with production operations. A piece of roofing almost fell on me and spared you the misfortune of reading this, but we’re not that lucky, are we?

education


University of Michigan, BFA InterArts Performance, Minor in Playwriting 2018 - 2020

A multidisciplinary degree focused on collaborations across fine arts, theatre, and digital media practices. I specialized in devising new theatre works, creating digital media, and being an absolute pain in the ass with my outspoken activism.

University of Georgia, BA Theatre 2016 - 2018

I studied academics and theatre here before transferring to the University of Michigan. I also managed to blow up a student theatre group, worked on numerous original productions, and generally caused enough chaos to be known for my “less than positive opinion of the program” according to one professor. He was later accused of sexual misconduct.
