About

I am a filmmaker and video journalist based in New York City. My work has been featured with the New York Times, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, National Geographic, Vimeo Staff Pick, AEON, and various other international media outlets. In 2015 I completed a 6-part series for Amazon Studios to serve as companion videos for the Todd Haynes film, Wonderstruck. In 2014, with NYC's MTA, I created a 10-part series depicting NYC's subway musicians. That series, Rhythm in Motion, was distributed in its entirety with The Atlantic. Individual episodes were picked up by Apple, Starbucks, AMEX, and JetBlue for their online content platforms.

Prior to my personal film work, I spent 15 years producing and production managing independent narrative feature films.  The emergence of video DSLR, post production tools, and the explosion of online distribution allowed me to take the leap toward creating personal work, often times single-handedly.

I studied photography and film at the Rhode Island School of Design before transferring and graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
