Music Video - Try

This was a found film project for MDIA 1020. The song "Try" was performed by Pink, and the video footage was all found on the internet. Everything was patched together in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

Short Script - Cats in Cannes

This is a story about two French, crime-fighting cats, Felipe and Luis, who risk their lives to rescue a stolen diamond. It's the first script I've written specifically for animation. It was a great class project, and I really enjoyed receiving feedback on it from my instructor and classmates. Click here to read my short script.

Newspaper Design - The Circleville Herald

These are some of the layouts that I made for The Circleville Herald while working for American Consolidated Media (ACM) in Athens, Ohio. I earned an Associated Press award for the "best page one layout" in 2013. The designs pictured below were created in Adobe InDesign CS5. It was a great experience working for ACM. I learned to work under intense deadlines, and I know it's going to help me in future work.

Film crew experience

I enjoy helping on film crews whenever the opportunity arises. I've helped two MFA students with their films at Ohio University. I typically serve as a grip and help set up the lights. But I've also had the privilege to be an extra in movies on several occasions. I'm looking forward to growing my skills in all areas of production in the coming years.

Instructional Video - Adobe InDesign Paragraph Styles

This is an instructional video that I made for a class project. InDesign is a lot of fun to use, so I hope you're inspired to try it. You really can't go wrong with weird cat pictures scavenged from the internet.
