I love film because it allows us dream and empathize with each other, and can have a very real influence in how we view the world. In my own films, I am interested in revealing the extraordinary in the everyday.
Some of happiest moments are when I am able to connect with people I would have never ordinarily have met without the excuse of making a film. Being able to share the experiences, knowledge, and dreams of others, and translating their stories into moving images, is an incredible privilege and rewarding challenge.
My work has screened at festivals across the U.S. and internationally and has been featured on publications such as The Atlantic. Recently, The Honeys and Bears was one of nine short films selected to be part of the 2017 season of Lunafest, a traveling film festival that raises funds for nonprofit causes across the country.
Last spring, I directed So You Think You Can Vote? (2016) for We the Voters, a series of 20 viral films that aim to demystify how our government works and activate citizens to vote, co-produced by Vulcan Productions, Show of Force and Warrior Poets.
I co-produced Art, Architecture and Innovation: Celebrating the Guggenheim Museum (2009), and was an associate producer on The New Black (2013) and Cooked (release TBA). I've also produced and edited videos for Guggenheim Museum, The Guardian, and The New Yorker.
I'm always interested in new collaborations. I'd love to hear from you!
