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. But I was getting further from where I started.
In 2015, I moved to Oakland with a renewed focus. I grew up a suburban kid. I played outside, scraped my knees and all that good stuff. But my world was manicured and starkly separated from the one that fueled and fed it. Moving to California, where the water from your tap means something and wild land still exists, 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, Discovery and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. And I’ve focused on what drives me forward, making films about our relationship with the natural world.
