Reisa has been working and playing in the realm of digital media since before the Web existed, and is currently the Producer for CitizenShift – an online social-media platform.
She began her artistic practice on stage as a member of the Narroway Theatre Troupe and from there went on to make her first films and videos.
After receiving a BA in Film Production from Concordia University, she worked in Nicaragua as the director/producer of a series of animated films on health and nutrition.
Reisa has a strong technical background with over 20 years of experience in film and video production as well as in Web development. Over the past decade, Reisa has produced several Web-based media projects, both as an employee of the National Film Board of Canada and as an independent producer.
While raising a family and working full time, she also, somehow, managed to complete an MA in Educational Technology at Concordia University. Reisa has worked as a consultant, lecturer and arts council jury member and is the recent past president of StudioXX, Montreal’s feminist digital arts centre.
