“I was in t.v. club in high school; we broadcast our shows to all of Swampscott, Mass, but being in t.v. club wasn’t the most popular thing; that was football. When I found out about Maine Media Workshops I instantly wanted to come here.
I came my junior year, which was a great time to come; it solidified my decision to study film in college. When I arrived here, I immediately felt appreciated for who I am and it changed my life, very much for the better. The people I met were like me, accepted me unconditionally and were really good at what they do. I found out that it is easy to make friends; everyone here got along so great. It’s a safe environment and there is this feeling of energy that I have never experienced before. The equipment here is great too.
I went to Quinnipiac University and became Quinnipiac Film Society’s Vice President. I worked on numerous productions as a director, editor, producer and grip. I was the technical director, cameraman and did audio for Q30’s Morning Talk Show. I also interned for Sony Music and for The Today Show. This fall I’ll be in grad school working on a higher education degree in Student Affairs and continuing with my love for media.
My life’s motto is ‘Be yourself’. Being yourself is something that society does not tell us to do, but everyone has a story to tell and something to offer! Being a filmmaker is being able to see things in a different way, to be able to tell your story and other people’s stories.”
