Originally from Westchester, NY, Jessica currently attends school at Emerson College for her film degree. With a strong concentration on cinematography and a double minor in photography and philosophy, she hopes to continue to pursue her passions after graduating this May. This past fall, Jessica spent a majority of her time behind the camera shooting her Bachelor's thesis film, "Incidental Attachment": a short romantic comedy about a woman who's afraid to leave her house.
In the past, Jessica has won an award for Best Music Video at the Hendrick Hudson Film Festival, and has worked with the 501 c3 Non-Profit Film Organization, Peers Influence Peers Partnership, whose work spread awareness about drug and alcohol abuse on local cable access channels across the country. In the summer of 2014, Jessica had the pleasure of interning for the award-winning film, No Letting Go, which has screened at festivals across the globe and is now available on Video-on-Demand.
Over the past four years, Jessica has spent her time on set working as a cinematographer, assistant camera, gaffer, key grip, film loader and camera operator. Most recently, she had the pleasure of working on NBC's original drama, "Blindspot", as a production assistant during the summer of 2017.
Throughout her college career, Jessica has maintained her place on the Dean’s List while also securing a job at the Paramount Soundstage in Boston as a Technical Support Specialist, interning for film rental supply stores like Rule Boston Camera, and working for the Boston based company, BKB&CO., as a wedding cinematographer and photographer.
Jessica especially enjoys spending her time photographing with 35mm and medium-format film, shooting on the Arri SR, and editing in the darkroom whenever possible. When she's not filming, Jessica can be found teaching over at Hill House Boston as a soccer and run coach for children three through ten years old. This January, she is excited to be traveling to Los Angeles, California to complete her last semester of college while interning at her favorite YouTube company, Mythical Entertainment.
