I take videos, communities, and friends seriously, but never myself

Helping Vimeo grow from 13 to over 200 employees, and fostering a beloved community of millions of creators and viewers has given me a unique insight into the online video world.

My absolute favorite thing is taking a great idea and making it something people watch and love and even share with their mom. 

When I was head of Vimeo's in-house production team I oversaw, directed, and executive produced all Vimeo branded content.

I founded and co-hosted the Vimeo Podcast which highlighted and spotlighted Vimeo's Staff Picked creators. I also oversaw the educational and live event aspect of Vimeo's Share the Screen program which aimed to foster gender equality in the film industry.

In my time as director of community and support, I hosted meet-ups, programmed screenings, led educational workshops, and interfaced with the Vimeo community on countless occasions. I'm regularly invited to be on the jury for film festivals, moderate Q&As and speak on panels.

August 2017 I became Program Director at Smashcut.com - an innovative online film school aiming to provide high-quality, project and mentor based education at a fraction of the cost of traditional film schools.
