I'm a documentary filmmaker, educator and transmedia tinkerer. My passion for storytelling began at a very young age in convincing others of entirely fictitious tales, but my work since has remained a bit more grounded in reality. I have nearly a decade of experience as a documentary editor and producer, and as a non-profit communications and fundraising strategist.
With a focus on international humanitarian and human rights advocacy, my work has taken me on a variety of projects in Africa and the Middle East. My documentary short MAKAPADS, about innovation in Uganda, was a semi-finalist in GE's Focus Forward Filmmaker Competition.
My community-based projects have focused on working as a mentor and technical advisor in youth media classes in New York City and Washington, DC. I have co-created a range of iPad and iPod-based video curricula.
I have a master’s in Media Studies from The New School in New York City.
