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.
