Brianna's passion for teaching and training in visual arts began during her internship at Bronxnet Community Television in 2015. While serving as a variety of studio production positions, she also eventually became the senior floor manager. Her duties included organizing the crew, delegating production positions for the live studio morning shows and liaising between the producer, director and the host; all of which eventually lead to her becoming Studio Coordinator and the Youth Internship Coordinator.

As the Youth Internship Coordinator, Brianna was able to use her technical and mentorship skills to develop and train over 100 students, ages 12 and up. She also forged a variety of partnerships with NYC based colleges and high schools, created and managed students schedules in the studio and ensured that they received both personal and technical training during their time at Bronxnet. 

After Bronxnet, Brianna went on to serve as a freelance production assistant for CNN in 2017 and also freelanced doing both photo and video work for a variety of non-profits, independent production companies and private events. In 2019, Brianna developed her first 7 week media education program as an independent with the Rockland Dream Project in Rockland, New York, which served middle school youth and provided entrepreneurship and filmmaking workshops.  Shortly after her first independent media program, she was hired by WHEDco in the South Bronx as a videography specialist, teaching video production to grades 6-8 in an after school program where she then was truly able to develop not only her own curriculum but a love for developing and mentoring the future generations of media.

Since then, Brianna has served as a teaching artist/facilitator and a consultant for a variety of non-profit education organizations and has also opened the doors to the public for media education sessions and one-on-one's within her own production company in NYC and works with people of all ages, teaching the basics of videography and photography.
