I’m a New York-raised Californian, traveling-homebody, filmmaker and photographer. My first foray into filmmaking was documenting impacts of the 2010 BP Oil Spill. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 2011, I was back in New York, working on any shoot that would have me. As I learned and progressed in the production world, I collaborated on documentary films, shorts and series with Bloomberg and ABC and commercials with brands like American Eagle and Sprite.

In 2015, I moved to Oakland. Moving to California led to a lot thought and a lot of change, and back to the stories I was drawn to in the beginning. Since then, I’ve continued to collaborate with other filmmakers and organizations, including Netflix and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. And I’ve focused on what drives me forward, making films about our relationship with the natural world.
