I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts with a BFA in photography and filmmaking. Since graduating from Cornish, I have created content for brands such as: Microsoft, Amazon, Big Cartel, Responsys, Tableau, among others. I've been selected for limited exhibitions like the Currents International New Media Festival in Santa Fe, NM, and Photo Center Northwest in Seattle, WA. While my professional work has been focused on creating content that expands brands' thinking into reaching broader audiences, my personal work focuses on deeper connections in human interaction. It's routed in nostalgia and memory. Finding connections that were once lost, but reinvigorated through memories and a sense of exploration.
Digital Kitchen develops creative work through the lens of experience design, focusing on audience and context - as a singular hybrid of creative agency and production company. At Digital Kitchen my role was as an assistant editor. During my time at DK I helped edit, manage, and direct projects – in correspondence with my Producers, Editors, and Creative Directors – to best fit the needs of our clients. These clients included companies like Microsoft, XBOX, Philips, Intel, and Starbucks. My responsibilities included editing, on-site production, media management, and archival preparation.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the largest private charitable foundation in the world. At the Gates Foundation I handled a variety of positions, including video editing, production, and the development of an archival system for the Foundation’s extensive catalog of digital and physical media. The content I was directly responsible for creating as a Editor and Producer had a global audience in mind - seeking to provide knowledge of the Foundations messages and morals.
I'm also a member of the group Newaxeyes, which has helped flex my abilities across multi-disciplinary art and collaboration. Seattle quartet Newaxeyes takes a genre-agnostic approach to songcraft. Melding wide-ranging influences and styles, they fuse diverse samples, guitar squalls, and caustic beats to create pieces that refract the frenzied information assault of our time. Their mercurial sound is tinged with the paranoia, volatility, and catharsis of the present.
Since forming in 2013, the members of Newaxeyes have pooled their distinctive abilities and tastes into collective expressions of the post-Information Age. Multi-instrumentalists with strong backgrounds in visual art and classical composition, their wide-angle vision has taken many shapes over the project’s three year lifespan: a steady stream of live outings punctuated by large-scale works and collaborations with performance and installation artists.
In 2015, Newaxeyes composed and performed a new original live score to the 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, as well as an hour-long live performance on KEXP radio’s Sonarchy program.
