After receiving a BA in film and media studies at the University of Florida, I spent a number of years in the commercial audio-visual industry with organizations such as Walt Disney World Co. honing my skills as a cinematographer, editor, sound & light technician. I acquired an MFA from the University of South Florida which has helped me to develop a rigorous studio practice, and immersed me in the world of contemporary art. I am currently the Instructor of Art and Media at USF’s School of Art and Art History while also pursuing a PhD in Media Studies from Western University.Director Statement
8 3/4 was made on a shoestring budget by a family of artists in the wake of enormous change. The film challenged us to accept a new reality while reminding us that we are still loved. Simply put, it’s exactly the kind of film we need right now.
