Rachel's projects have been featured by WIRED Magazine, Vimeo Staff Picks, VICE, The National Film Board of Canada, Adweek, The Future Laboratory, PSFK, Huffington Post, The Atlantic, NPR and Fast Company.

She holds with a master's degree from the school of design at the Royal College of Art in London, and has exhibited/screened work internationally.
