Teaching Philosophy

Beyond establishing a knowledge base and foundation in technical skill, I believe in working with the individual to identify and foster their unique talents and creative voices. Drawing from my own experience studying film and working in New York, I am constantly searching for opportunities to share practical examples of how the course syllabus translates to being a working filmmaker.

Courses Taught: Post-Production Explorations
