I am a filmmaker (producer, director, cinematographer, and editor) whose work is inspired by the way an active camera captures movement on the two-dimensional plane that is film. For the past 2 years I worked at Red Creek Productions, where I produced 8 TV spots and 2 documentaries. Independently, I have produced videos for Steinway & Sons and SoulCycle, filmed music videos for Soléy, JFDR, Johanna Warren, and Jodie Landau + Wild Up. I have documented Robert Ashley’s Vidas Perfects at the Whitney Museum, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Faye Driscoll Group at Danspace Project, and Catherine Galasso’s Fall of the Rebel Angels at The Watermill Center. My dance films have been presented at Anthology Film Archives, Lincoln Center, The Getty Museum, Village East Cinema, The University of Michigan, and REDCAT. I have hosted dance film screenings and workshops for the Movement Invention Project and for Pentacle Movement Media, and was recently interviewed about my work with drones for the Drone Girl blog. I graduated from the California Institute of the Arts (2012) with a BFA in Film/Video and a minor in Creative Writing.
I have a background in dance and love communicating story / theme / concept through movement, both in front of and behind the camera. I believe this can be more expressive than language itself, and I am particularly interested in maintaining the organic physicality of live performance - with an awareness of the technical challenges of the translation to cinema. Working in dance film for 6 years has developed my specialist knowledge of the technical challenges of preserving three-dimensionality on the two-dimensional plane that is film (at this time!). I'm interested in site-specific work that brings dance beyond the theatre and into the frame. I am inspired by nature and take every opportunity to film outdoors, especially when the required equipment is compact and light enough to carry in with me on my back.
I have been in the industry since 2012.
