I design curriculums for the Emerging Filmmaker Mentorship Program, advise faculty on incorporating media tools into humanities and social science pedagogies, and maintain student, staff, and faculty facing communications for IMATS and the Media Center.

I received my MFA in Film from Columbia University and my BA in English Literature from Washington University. I’m a San Francisco International Film Festival Sloan Science in Cinema Filmmaker Fellow, and I’m currently developing a feature as the recipient of the Jesse Thompkins III Screenwriting Award.
