I’m a documentary filmmaker. I direct, shoot and edit. I believe the art of nonfiction has the power to radically change the way we listen to each other. In my current work I live in a place, filming by myself and hoping to give voice to the smaller stories that surround us. When not making films, I teach free and low cost media classes around the world. I'm honored to be a 2018 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Video/Film.
