This is a video that I produced over the course of ten months. I began shooting when I was diagnosed with colon cancer in March 2018, and published January 2019. Edited by Stephen Castro, George Diaz, and myself.

Before I knew of my cancer diagnosis, I was overcome with a sense of urgency to live out my life's dreams before it was "too late." This bucket list video was born, as were two follow-up videos where I helped others achieve things off their bucket lists. I produced this with the help of a small team, shooting for 5 days straight.

I had a lot of fun producing this and getting Nikkie involved in the video. My goal was to begin getting BuzzFeed more involved in the conversations going on in the YouTuber community. Their content was super successful with a dedicated following and I wanted to see how the audience would react to BuzzFeed and their favorite YouTuber collaborate. Edited by Benjamin King and myself.

I made this because of the interest the audience had been showing in knowing how we manage our hair. The audience reaction was very positive, and I get messages to this day from people saying this video inspired the way they manage their hair!

Made for Mental Health Awareness Week at BuzzFeed, I received many messages (and continue to) of thanks for making the video, as it's come in handy during hard times for people. Even if it only helped one person I would've been proud, but the impact has been long-lasting. Co-produced by Jared Nunn.

This video was produced by Sara Rubin and me. It was a successful first attempt at testing a new format, and two other similar, successful test videos were born of this frame! Edited by Sara Rubin.

It was the day after the most recent presidential election, and there was a stressful air in the office. I grabbed a camera and got to work. It was conceived of, shot, edited, and published in lass than 24 hours.

This was one of my first forays into shooting a mostly-iPhone-footage video. It performed very well and delivered a strong message to our audience about self-love.

This is one of my favorite videos I've produced (with the help of Fernando Padron). We wanted to give drag queens a spotlight through our platform, and maybe influence the minds of some more conservative people across the U.S./ the world!

I produced this during the BuzzFeed Fellowship. Our audience loves seeing the intimate moments in relationships. Our lie detector test videos had done very well, so this was an iteration off those formats.

While BuzzFeed still had a scripted department, I produced this during the Fellowship. It performed well on YouTube, but really excelled on Facebook.

I love making people feel good. So I gathered some BuzzFeed personalities just to make them feel good.
