Over the last seven years, I’ve been studying digital media and its ever-changing platforms. I love experimenting with new skills and techniques in videography, photography, and graphic design.

Video production

Video production is my main squeeze. Everyone and their mom knows that videos get more engagement than still photos. Video allows you to play with sound, pacing, and motion graphics to create a compelling narrative. I now help small businesses and entrepreneurs tell their story and provide value through video.

photography

Social media analytics be damned, you cannot ignore the power of a carefully composed (or even just very luckily timed) still photograph. It’s been wonderful to have the opportunity to capture people, products, and passions as a freelancer through still photography.

graphic design

I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had over the last few years to strengthen my graphic design skills. In my role as a Multimedia Designer, I’ve had no choice but to improve, and it’s been fun all the while. I love experimenting with color stories and creating designs I can then play with in After Effects.
