These are videos I've created in a professional setting. Most are freelance work, and  a few are from past internships.

I created this main campaign video to help Tom convey why Lynn is poised for revitalization, the challenges and opportunities facing the city, and the leadership and experience he can bring to city hall.

Campaign Kick-Off video I created for the Committee to Elect Tom McGee. Watch to hear some of Massachusetts State Senator Tom McGee's speech from his campaign kick-off, and to hear from supporters on why they support his bid for Mayor of Lynn. This project means a lot to me as I believe in Tom and the change he can bring to my home town!

This is a marketing video deigned for Instagram I created for Land of a Thousand Hills, a specialty coffee cafe and social enterprise which provides job training to homeless and at-risk youth in the North Shore area.

In that regard, the video produced excellent results, as the video earned over 9,000 views and over 2,000 engagements and click-throughs from students.

These videos are a collection of short films and sketches I've created or worked on purely out of sheer passion for the craft, a will to create, and in some cases, to fulfill a course requirement for my degree. It's mostly sketch comedy, so here's hoping you have a sense of humor!
