ABOUT

My work reflects who I am as a person. I am adventurous and creative, but I also pay attention to very small details. I love telling stories through different platforms and mediums, as I feel this offers multiple viewpoints of a narrative. I hope to provide voice for those who may be silenced or hushed.

FILM

This is an Observational Documentary I filmed and edited for my Digital Filmmaking class Sophomore year. My good friend has a passion for music, especially in a physical medium. This specifically applies to vinyl records. He makes YouTube videos about records he loves and dives deep into the history of production and influence each record brings.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Digitally designed graphic of the phrase 'Hawkchill.' The black font is Helvetica and the letter I in 'chill' is the shape of a gotchic tower. The tower is red and black.

I made this graphic as part of an assignment for my Digital Aesthetics class. The assignment was to design a new header logo for my school's student publication site, HawkChill. The site itself is relatively minimalistic, so I wanted to have a minimalistic yet creative design. I modeled the tower for the letter "I" after the Barbelin Hall Tower on our campus. I designed and edited this graphic in Adobe Photoshop.

FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

Portrait photograph of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The photo is shot on film so it has a grainy look to it. In the foreground is a grey stone path with a few pedestrians on it. There are trees to the right and to the left is a green fence that blocks off a grassy lawn area. The Eiffel tower itself takes up most of the frame. It is a tan metal tower that is in the general shape of a triangle. The background features a blue sky with a few clouds.

The past semester I studied abroad in London, England. While I was there I got in the habit of buying disposable FujiFilm Cameras. I think I went through at least 5 of them while I was there, so I have a large collection of developed film photographs of my travels around Europe. This a picture I took while in Paris with my Mother and Aunt.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Black and white photograph of me perched on top a rock at Lake Wallenpaupak in Pennsylvania. There are rocks at the bottom of the frame. In the center of the frame is myself on top of a rock, kneeling down. The background is of a lake with the other side visible.

This picture was taken at Lake Wallenpaupak in the Mount Pocono Region of Pennsylvania. I set my camera up on a Gorilla-Pod and set a timer. This picture was my attempt at replicating the pose musician Eddie Vedder made on the cover of his album he made for the Into the Wild Soundtrack. I edited this picture in Adobe Lightroom as well.
