Profile

I'm an Educator & Content Creator from Lakeland, Fl. I aim to make a difference through through multiple emotional channels creating a dynamic transaction.

My most recent digital project is a feature-length documentary on the wood-cased number two pencil. My current research interests are studying changes in cinematic codes between two-dimensional and 360 cinematic spaces and how that impacts short-term learning behavior and cognitivism.
