        I am a senior media and communications major with a concentration in screen media. I’m passionate about film, and especially enjoy analysing patterns within large groups of popular, contemporary media. From a production standpoint, I specialise in video editing, in particular narrative and documentary film. For my thesis, I’m looking to use the skills I have acquired over the last four years to create an extended video essay, diving deep into the idea of the car as a bridge between real life and cinema, and its symbolic meaning both on and off screen.
