I’m a Brooklyn based documentary filmmaker. I direct, shoot and edit, and work with talented collaborators from sound designers to animators to producers. I tend towards the quieter stories, the seemingly insignificant. And I find myself believing more and more in the empathic power of storytelling. In my current work I live in a place or a community for months at a time, hoping to give voice to the smaller stories that surround us every day but which we rarely celebrate.
Just a small selection of some of my favorite people, places and things, all of which inspire me daily:
Les Blank / Vikram Jayanti / Kim Longinotto / Abbas Kiarostami / Alexander Porter / Radiotopia / Emma Matthews / Studs Terkel / Frederick Wiseman / Home of the Brave / Light Industry / Love + Radio / Errol Morris / Jen G. Pywell / Lauren McCarthy / Elli Chung / The Ross Brothers / St. John's College / BRIC Arts Media / Maryse Alberti / Benjamin Walker's Theory of Everything / Joan Churchill / (((echo magic))) / Eleanor Stewart / This American Life / The Museum of the Moving Image / Scatter / Ashley Cardiff / Terry Zwigoff / Deepspeed Media / Erica Gorochow / DCIFF / Sensory Ethnography Lab / Spectacle Theater / Patrick Moberg / Wes Anderson / Holy Fuck Improv Hour / Robert Adams / Lee Friedlander / The Museum of Jurassic Technology
.... and many many more.
