A Recent Project - Highlands
A multimedia story experience that combines video clips and a screenplay for an interactive way of taking in the material. It's the story of two kids on the Carlmont High School baseball team who are in their senior year. Elias and Dakota have been friends since they were younger, always on the same team, and are now navigating their expanded ambitions and identities of their teenage years.

In 2008, I created my first website named Imagination Detonation. It was filled with my cartoons of two-headed ducks and early photographs. While still in high school, I started to shoot and edit my own video interviews with different artists for the site, and ended up doing over 50 interviews from 2010-12.
During college, I started an online publication called Ludique Magazine in January 2013. It began with a focus around mobile photography in particular and has since grew to include many different formats. I've done over 100 interviews for the magazine with photographers from around the world and have served as editor, curator, writer, photographer – wearing almost all hats for the magazine.
Studying abroad in London and Europe during 2014 made a strong impact on me. After graduating in 2015, I worked at Business Insider as a Visual Features Reporter. I had also worked previously at Animated Storyboards, Respect Magazine, and Sovrn State – the latter of which is a creative artist management company where I have been working again since the beginning of 2016 as a Design and Marketing Producer.
As a way to start a project around the interest in movies I’ve had since I was a kid, I created a website called Cinemisto in 2015 that allowed me to both study and highlight the most interesting cinematography from my favorite films. More recently, I have expanded the content to include interviews with creators of short films. In 2016, I co-hosted a talk show called Group Chat with three friends on Dash Radio. We recorded over a dozen episodes, each a couple of hours, and would talk about music, sports, and movies.
In the summer of 2016, I shot my first real narrative short film Highlands. This became a multimedia experience in the form of a website that had a mix of a screenplay with video clips. I am currently in post-production on my next film project, shot last fall.
Ever since a boy, I've been heavily influenced by the world of cinema. This is a project to curate the strongest frames from my favorite films and analyze them in particular through a cinematography lens.
As a Designer and Marketing Producer, I create presentations for clients, develop strategies for marketing the artists, and research project ideas. SOVRN is an artist management and consulting agency who has worked with clients such as Red Bull, Google, and Panasonic.
Did original features and interviews with photographers around the world as a Visual Features Reporter intern. Over a quarter of my articles received over 100,000 hits. Occasionally shot own photos on assignment around NYC. Also co-ran company's main Instagram accounts in its early stages and helped double its audience in a month.
Photographed concerts and interviews for the publication, which heavily revolved around music and art. Wrote content for the online division of the publication on a daily basis throughout my internship.
Worked as an Organizational Assistant at the company's offices, gaining knowledge of the inner workings of a corporate studio with clients such as Budweiser, Pepsi, and The New York Jets.
A talk show I did with a few friends on Dash Radio, where we discussed everything from music to sports to movies. It aired every other week on Saturday mornings from 10am-12pm EST and for over a dozen episodes in 2016.
Imagination Detonation / ID+
In October of 2008, I started a project called Imagination Detonation - later shortened for a period to ID Plus (or ID+), as a way to show my artwork to family and friends. After, it grew and served as the home of my portfolio until 2018.
