I currently work with the U.S. Department of State creating digital first content in order to engage with foreign audiences on U.S. policy priorities.

I learned documentary filmmaking from the best in the business—Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams, Life Itself, The Interrupters, Steve). Through this experience I not only learned how to craft an authentic story but also the importance of listening and connecting with the people in front of the camera. Storytelling is at the heart of everything I do.

With experience creating both long and short form content, I am confident in tackling an array of projects.
