DIRECTOR | DP
I am a national award-winning director, writer, and director of photography based in New York City. For me, telling stories is an art and a calling. I care deeply about craft and meticulously tend the details. I’m especially passionate about stories grounded in social issues, environment, and science, but my interests are wide and diverse. My films have earned me a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Documentary and a National American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Kavli Science Journalism Award. I have also won Emmy Awards for my producing, cinematography, and editing. My work has been featured nationally and internationally through HBO Films, PBS, Nat Geo, Netflix, CBS, MSNBC, Vox, and the Cannes International Film Festival. I'm also an FAA-certified professional drone pilot who flies everything from large cinema-grade UAVs to acrobatic FPV drones. I love to collaborate. Drop me a line and let’s connect.
