I’m a NY Emmy winning Director of Photography. My work as a producer, shooter, and editor has been nominated at the NY Emmy's nineteen times in the past three years.  Additionally my work has taken home awards and selections at top tier festivals including: Hot Docs, Doc NYC, BAM, IFP FilmWeek, Big Sky Doc Fest, and more.

During my time at BRIC TV I produced, shot, and edited hundreds of documentaries. More importantly, I played an integral role in building the new brand and aesthetic for Brooklyn's premiere arts and culture channel. I created budgets and saw through the purchase and maintenance of in house production equipment. I expanded and managed a freelance roster of 25+ Camera Operators, created and ran training programs to grow the technical skills of operators and staff producers, all while pitching and creating my own content and facilitating brand partnerships.

Additionally I’ve worked with UCB and their talent-pool creating sketch comedy shorts, such as the hit “The Van Gogh Show” and more…

One of my favorite experiences in the past 2 years has been leading workshops and volunteering as a 1-on-1 mentor with ReelWorks Filmmaker Labs. If you know of anyone who would be interested in participating with this great organization - check them out at http://www.reelworks.org/ 

My joy is creating dynamic images that inspire - Stories that help us feel unified in all life offers. Whether bringing laughter or heartbreak my goal is to capture, with clarity, the most compelling moments of truth beyond the lens. (and to maintain a general self-awareness of how preachy this sounds!)

Thank you for your interest, and I hope to work with you someday!


Peace | Love
