DIRECTOR | DP
I am a national award-winning filmmaker, director of photography, and editor based in New York City. I have an insatiable curiosity about the world and specialize in stories grounded in social issues, science, and environment. I bring a keen storyteller's eye, an obsessive attention to craft, and a tireless Midwestern work ethic to every project. I am the recipient of a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Documentary and winner of a National American Association for the Advancement of Science Kavli Science Journalism Award for my films on science and conservation. 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.
