I Make documentary films.
It's a passion I stumbled upon at the age of 13 that has flourished from hobby to career in the last decade and a half.
For my first several years out of college I put my liberal arts film production B.A. to use working my way up through the ranks of the National Geographic Television HQ in Washington, DC, from intern to production coordinator, to associate producer, to additional editor for the Emmy favored Explorer: Warlords of Ivory show, and also post produced (wrote and edited) multiple web films including Cine Golden Eagle winning ocean films for the Nat Geo Education website.
Though my roots are southern and midwest, most of my career has been in DC, LA, and currently NYC where I work as a freelance editor, always on the hunt for fascinating science, nature, adventure sports, or human interest related documentary gigs with an end goal of prediting my own films some day.
I wouldn’t be where I am today if I weren’t a tenacious dreamer. When my aspirations for the WNBA, Olympics, tornado chasing, or Navy SEAL didn’t pan out, I poured all that energy into becoming as strong of a story teller as I could. And suddenly I realized telling stories of the subjects that inspire me most is even more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. I truly feel like I have the luckiest job in the world.
In my spare time, I'm always planning my next adventure, which usually involves climbing mountains in foreign countries, stand up paddle boarding or white water kayaking, lots of camping and hiking, and hopefully hanging out with some friendly wildlife. Always with a camera of course, shooting and producing for personal clients on the side.
