Altered States Podcast

This is a podcast that I created and hosted while studying psychology in the Netherlands. I designed the introduction sequence as well as the audio waves shown throughout the recording so that the presentation was more professional/engaging than a static image for the duration of the recording.

Venue Opening

This video was a collaboration between me and a local fifties-style bar, Crossroads. This video was filmed on their opening night and used as promotion for the venue. None of the footage was staged in order to make the video feel more authentic.

travel video

This is a video I made for fun when I traveled to Berlin to interview a Buddhist monk for a project I was working on. I had recently bought my first camera and wanted to play around with it a bit.
