ViDCo, Video Designer, 2021 - PresentI 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 - PresentI 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 2016I 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?
