This is a selection of some videos I've had a key hand in creating over the last few years. Some were created while working full-time at Northeastern University, Newfangled Studios and New England Sports Network. Some were freelance productions and some were just for fun.
On several of these videos, I was part of a team (sometimes big, sometimes small) who played important roles in the production of these examples. I'm happy to make sure credit goes to these talented people. Listing all of these colleagues on my personal site doesn't make sense. For specifics on this, please reach out to me!

The Project: This was a :30 television spot meant to promote Northeastern University's "Howlin Huskies Fund".

This piece is currently airing on New England Sports Network.

The Project: This piece uses a narrative and cinematic approach to help viewers understand the mission of Northeastern University's "Women Who Empower" network.

The project: A series of 6 animated videos created for Harvard Business School. These were used as a Title IX training tool for first year HBS students.
My Role: Producer/Project Manager. Because of the sensitive nature of these animations, careful detail had to be considered at every phase of this production. How were people portrayed?

My role: Producer/Director/Project Manager.
