About Me

NYC based filmmaker specializing in Documentaries and Corporate Video. Mostly shoot and edit but I direct and produce on occasion as well.

Highlights across my 7 years of experience:

Running on Fumes in North Dakota - 2014, a New York Times Op-doc short with nearly 3 million views on YouTube alone (director, cinematographer, editor).

3 years of full time contracting with 3M Company as a videographer (2015), producer (2016) and occasional director (2017-2018) of unscripted content for their corporate marketing team.

Recipient of Upper Midwest Emmy 2017 for Shawn Carling, Lamp Artist, a short documentary TV segment for twin cities PBS.
