bio

As a documentary filmmaker, I focus on character driven stories, in both short and long format. My work has screened in 19 film festivals and conferences in four countries. I am drawn to stories about people who face their limits with dignity.

I hope to provide an honest examination of our shared human experience though my work. I believe documentary film can be a valuable tool to inspire social sustainability, offer hope, and promote appreciation of one another around the globe. In my films, I try to ask my audience to explore their values and I hope to encourage greater tolerance and understanding among us all.

I received an M.F.A. in documentary film from the Documentary Film Program at Wake Forest University and a B.S. in communications media from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I interned with Albert Maysles, the legendary father of direct cinema and Loki Films in New York City. Previously I worked in radio production and fundraising/development. I have worked with a variety of nonprofit organizations in areas including public broadcasting, art, education, at-risk youth and animal advocacy. I currently work as a video producer and adjunct professor at the University of Florida.
