The Criterion Collection

I worked at the Criterion Collection from 2007 to 2015. As part of a small team, I led Criterion's online marketing and development roadmap, with specific focus on content strategy, interaction design and user experience on Criterion.com and related initiatives.

Below are some projects and my contributions:



The official US site for the sci-fi epic Snowpiercer, directed by Bong Joon Ho. It’s powered by Tumblr for easy updating, and uses Isotope.js for sorting tiles of media content. Built for Radius/The Weinstein Company.

Still Moving: Pilobolus at Forty

I designed and built this Tumblr-powered site for a dance documentary by Jeffrey Ruoff.


A 3D tilt game I created for iOS using Unity. Building it was a great learning experience—a crash course in game design and 3D modeling.

Oppa Gangnam Style

A Tumblr of animated GIFs that I made.

Other Experiences

Offline and analog adventures.

Reverse Shot

I've written since 2009 for the film journal Reverse Shot. Some of my pieces:

Saw / The Swan (2014)
Les Misérables (2012)
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (2012)
9 (2009)

Telluride Film Festival

I have worked for the Telluride Film Festival since 2006. I've volunteered at seven installments of the festival so far, and screened and critiqued hundreds of short films for two summers.

Dartmouth Film Society

I was director of the Dartmouth Film Society, one of the oldest college film societies in the U.S., from 2006-2007. I crafted over 200 film programs a year (at the time, more than 90% on 35mm), led meetings, edited original essays, and wrote advertising copy.

Montage: The Dartmouth Film Journal

I designed all covers and contents of the printed campus film journal, in addition to writing and editing original articles.
