About Me

I'm a filmmaker and editor who works across scripted film and documentary. I’ve worked as DoP of "The Ascent" (NYCA, IndieX 2019), co-director/editor of the pilot episode for documentary series "Curiosity: The Making of a Scientist" (2020), and director/editor of short films with various festival screenings. My recent thesis film, “Kinoptia” (2020), made for Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago, explores creative editing to shape the way viewers listen.

I have been in the industry since 2016.

Son of Charlie
Added on 1/6/2021
At his local bar, where the middle-aged and hardened Charlie finds not his usual respite but a heated discussion on fatherhood, he must come to terms with his absence from his son’s life. Shot in Chicago, 2019.
