I'm an award winning documentary film and television director producer and writer whose work has appeared on Netflix, Apple+, Amazon, as well as other major outlets.

 

I've worked in 4 continents, documenting street gangs, drug dealers and users in Denver; Women trafficking in some of the most dangerous parts of Central America, refugees fleeing the war in Syria on their journey to safety, as well as dare-devil ice swimmers. I've  interviewed Nobel Prize winners to get to the roots of the financial crisis, Rumsfeld, Cheney and others about decision-making during 9/11, Obama’s top security and intelligence advisors about capturing bin Laden, and Julian Assange on how growing up in the shadow of the Cold War shaped his world view. 

 

I've spent time with a wide range of not-as-famous but equally fascinating characters: from sex workers to hedge fund whiz kids, from storm chasers to Native American Chiefs, from criminals to cops, from new mothers and orphans.

My films often tackle the urgent issues of the day, whether it's the global refugee crisis, climate change, inequality or mental health. I’m proud to say that while the scale, scope and themes may be different, what they all have in common is a “heart”-- they tell engaging impactful stories through a human prism.

Sky and Ground, my feature debut, premiered at DocNYC and has since won multiple awards, including CINE's Golden Eagle Best Documentary. It was nominated for an International Documentary Association award for Best Documentary, while Sex and Love around the World was nominated for an IDA for the Best Television Series category. Sky and Ground is now available on Amazon Prime.

My films for Earthstorm (Emmy nominated), and Sex and Love Around the World are now available on Netflix.  

I'm currently developing a drama-thriller set in the Middle East and working on a feature documentary.
