I did not choose my career, it chose me. I did not go to film school--I'm your old-school valedictorian-type, and my degree (in medieval history) is from the University of Chicago, possibly the most theory-oriented place on earth.

I used to think this was a disadvantage, but actually it helps me in my work every day. I had a really diverse education, both in class and outside of class, so I can relate to multiple audiences and get nerdy about almost any topic. I am creative but also technically precise, and I bring passion and intelligence to every project, no matter how small or large.

When not making videos, I can be found lifting heavy weights, playing classical music, shooting a bow or sewing dresses.
