About My Work I have been a Visual Producer for 14 years and my humble brags are that I have never been over budget, missed a deadline or delivered unlicensed content. I am obsessed with process, an excel guru, and love to minimize budget while maximizing content. I have worked extensively with Public Domain and love a Fair Use Challenge (through collaboration with production/broadcaster lawyers). For larger projects, I am adept at establishing processes and building a database that will work with simultaneous edits and complement the post-team work load. I have also managed teams of researchers (up to 6) and have fulfilled the needs of up to 12 editors at one time. I can also facilitate rights for production recreations and have added experience working/storyboarding animation to help creatively fill all visual holes. I have a degree in physics and relish the opportunity to work in education/science and love when I can help math be visual. I Identify as BIPOC and queer and am passionate to help bring any of those creative visions to life. In short: I am meticulous, hard-working and hilarious.

About My Work Although my time as a visual researcher for film now spans four years , my experience as a researcher has been garnered over a decade in numerous fields. In 2002 I completed a MA in Visual Culture, specializing in Costume (Dress) History at New York University. Whether researching images and content for a book on American fashion, sourcing images for a former Editor in Chief of American Vogue magazine, creating and teaching courses for the Parsons School of Design, the Fashion Institute of Technology and Concordia University, or researching images for a dress history exhibition at the McCord Museum of Canadian History, my work has involved searching for just the right image be in online, in a journal or within the pages of a fragile c. 1940s magazine.As one who is passionate about visual culture, design, history and popular culture, I consider the opportunity to delve into a world of images - and tell stories through them - a gift. In short, I love the work! Although my focus as an academic was teaching fashion history, it's impossible to do that without discussing how dress was (and is) part of a bigger picture. Technology, war, art, design, architecture, politics, trade, music and literature are inseparable from fashion. Film can also illustrate fashion - how it was worn, how it appeared and moves on the body - like nothing else. Having earned BFA in Film Studies in the 1990s and as someone who loves film and documentaries, finding just the right film footage to complete a lecture was something I loved doing. That I get to do it now as a visual researcher - be the footage about freight trains or World War I German munitions - is fantastic.I worked for nine months as the sole researcher, archivist and coordinator for four of six episodes of Megafun Productions six-part series "MegaTrains," which airs on Discovery International in 2016. I also served as the footage archivist for Israeli-American filmmaker Ilan Ziv's documentary An Eye for an Eye, as well as music and footage archivist for documentary filmmaker Danae Elon's film The Patriarch's Room. Both documentaries are co-produced with Paul Cadieux of Filmoption International.
