I'm an experienced journalist, documentary producer/director and camera operator, passionate about character-driven, immersive storytelling. I've covered stories across five continents and speak French, Spanish and Portuguese.
I got my start after college making short docs independently, and have since produced and shot 70+ TV segments and digital videos, from quickturn short form to hour-long investigative documentaries.
My work has appeared on VICE News Tonight, VICE on Showtime, The New York Times, The Atlantic, and more. I won an Emmy in 2021 as a Producer for Outstanding Newscast, and an Emmy nomination for co-producing an episode of The New York Times' Opinion series, Equal Play.
I'm available for projects worldwide, as a producer, field producer or camera operator for documentaries, news outlets, or creative agencies. Let's work together!
