Over the past two decades, I have produced and edited arts-related programming for myriad companies including Sundance Channel, Vice Media, Alaska Dispatch News and Etsy. I am currently a staff filmmaker at the Criterion Collection in NYC, covering stories about film culture across the country. My interest in storytelling and documentary has led me to notable and quirky places around the world. From throat-singing sisters in Canada, to an abandoned textile mill town in Lancashire, UK, my feature stories seek to get to the heart - of the story, the character, and what it means to be human.

Winner of the 2014 NW Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Feature Reporting and nominated for four NW Regional Emmy Awards. A native New Yorker and adventurer, I love meeting new people and giving voice to compelling, personal stories.
