What I Do  

Professional Experience

NVIDIA Corp.

Video Production Intern

During the Summers of 2017-2019 I worked on NVIDIA's creative team as a "jack-of-all-trades" intern; Aiding in set design, film, and the post-production process of a variety of productions ranging from simple YouTube tutorials to worldwide ad campaigns. Most notably, I was intimately involved in the historic launch of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, whose marketing campaign videos have garnered millions of views, and I interviewed several developers of Minecraft, the highest-grossing video game of all time, for a major announcement in August of 2019.

The Bates Student

Photographer

I provide photographs, videos, and graphics for all major sections of the newspaper using a fast and efficient editing workflow with Lightroom, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro. In meetings, writers, editors, and photographers discuss new article ideas and ways to expand The Bates Student's online presence through video series and filmed interviews. I collaborate with the newsroom to help those ideas come to fruition.
