I am an independent journalist, cinematographer, and documentary producer with extensive experience shooting and producing non-fiction programming for television and the web. My work has appeared in the New York Times, The Economist Films, and The Guardian, and I regularly work as a documentary cinematographer for shows and networks such as National Geographic “Explorer,” VICE News Tonight on HBO, PBS Newshour, CBSN Originals, CNN Films, Al Jazeera, and the BBC.
Throughout my career I have worked in over a dozen countries including Haiti, Pakistan, Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Bosnia, Rwanda, Kenya, and Burundi, often juggling multiple roles as a producer and/or shooter. More recently, my work has taken me around the U.S., covering the early months of the 2016 primaries, the Trump campaign, and since the inauguration, capturing the human impacts from and implications of the current political environment for a variety of networks and organizations. I like to work simply and quickly, keeping an eye and ear out for crucial story elements and compelling character moments while never sacrificing a cinematic experience for the viewer.
I am a member of the Frontline Freelance Register and was HEFAT certified in 2016. When I’m not working, I like surfing, climbing, reading, and watching Seinfeld. I recently relocated from New York City to Los Angeles.
