Film

As an undergraduate at Columbia University, I majored in film studies and studied under prominent academics, including the late Andrew Sarris (famed proponent of auteurist film theory) and Annette Insdorf, the foremost scholar on Holocaust cinema. My senior thesis was a formal analysis of the visual style in Charlie Chaplin's cinema, which remains -- to my knowledge -- the longest sustained analysis of this lamentably ignored subject. Later, I worked as an assistant teacher at USC's School of Cinematic Arts for several undergraduate classes while simultaneously pursuing my M.F.A. in film. I received my degree in Fall 2012. Other distinctions include serving as President of Columbia Undergraduate Film Productions and participating as a member of the highly selective Telluride Film Festival Student Symposium.

Video Production

I studied film studies at Columbia University and earned my M.F.A. in Film and Television Production from USC's School of Cinematic Arts. I assistant taught multiple classes at USC, including Film Production I and Music Video and Commercial Production. My own work has screened at multiple festivals, including a documentary I shot that won the silver palm at the Mexican International Film Festival.
