About Me

Experienced Director / Editor for film and commercial productions. My editorial commercial/branded content clients include Facebook, IKEA, Pedigree, Cigna, SpeakENDO, Mastercard, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Verizon Fios, US Army, and more. Agencies/Companies: Ataboy Studios, CraftWW/McCANN, MomentumWW, Troica MISSION, Fearless Agency, among others.

A hyphenate, I frequently collaborates as a writer, director, producer, and/or editor, depending on the nature and needs of each individual project. With a soft spot for stories with unique takes on the universal human experience, I see myself as a visualist who passionately follows the mantra of pushing every project to the edge of innovation, originality, and impactful storytelling.

“Jasmine” my most recent film as director premiered at the Lighthouse Film Festival and is currently enjoying a successful festival run while I work on branded and commercial projects and developing narrative features and series attached as a director or writer/director.

My recent editor credit “Brighton 4” won the Best International Feature at Tribeca Film Festival ’21 among other awards. A docu-drama film "American Trial" that portrays the Eric Garner trial that may have been, premiered at the 2019 New York Film Festival. Other projects were in competition at Tribeca FF, Rhode Island International FF, Cinequest, Seattle International FF, Nashville FF, and many other US and International festivals.

Projects that I produced and/or edited have gone on to attain successful distribution theatrically, as well as on SVOD platforms and on cable television.

I have been in the industry since 2008.
