ABOUT

 
Zoe Kissel, Content Creator, Video Editing, Analog Photography, Graphic Design, Web Design, Motion Graphics, Social Media, Documentary Production, Scan Adapters, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University.

Hi! I’m Zoe.

I am a content creator working as a video editor, analog photographer, and social media manager for various clients and brands.

After graduating from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media + Information, a concentration in Film + Media Production, and a minor in Documentary Production, I now work as the Digital Media Coordinator for the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum.

In East Lansing, Michigan, I've grown my own business too—I've had the opportunity to collaborate with clients across the U.S. through freelancing content creation, while also designing a thoughtful product line for analog photographers.

As a multifaceted creator, I work to document and share stories through many mediums, all while delivering effective, polished, and personalized visual results.
