Weekly Videos A Series
When my workplace, Carmichael Lynch, transitioned to remote work as COIVD-19 became an ever-present reality, I wanted to do my part to keep our community strong and connected. Concepting, initiating, producing, and animating this series, I began asking agency coworkers a weekly question in which they would send back recorded audio replieS. Each week I compiled and animated the responses. I aimed to create a light space for journal-like reflection and whimsical togetherness, in what became a time capsule of a historic moment we are living through. A few of these videos are featured below.
Emergence, a Digital Media Studies Capstone multimedia installation, projected onto Rettner Hall’s surfaces and ceiling at the University of Rochester. Drawing inspiration from Finnish lore, I directed a team in abstracting a creation myth that contemplatively looped, activating the space with original music, animation, projection mapping, and motion detecting interactivity. This teaser served to bring attention to our installation through social media.

As director of design and branding for the University of Rochester's inaugural Tedx event, I worked with the pre-determined theme to generate hype and event awareness. A cat whose tail morphs into a question mark became our main visual identifier along with a red ball of yarn.
