documentary filmmaker, cinematographer, and photographer
Award-winning cinematographer, director, video advisor for President Obama, and Elizabeth Warren + Joe Biden campaigns, Director of Video and Videographer for the White House Office of the Vice President.

Soon thereafter, my freelance life as a documentary cinematographer and filmmaker ramped back up, with projects ranging from independent features to episodic tv to campaign videos. I also contributed a chapter to the book "West Wingers," released in 2018. Then, I had the best jobs ever 2.0, first as Senior Advisor for Video & Senior Road Videographer for Elizabeth Warren 2020, then for Team Biden as Director & Cinematographer for Mobilization Ads in Pennsylvania and the Presidential Inaugural Committee! Most recently I was on team OVP at the White House, as Director of Video and Videographer during transition through August 2022. I am now processing, freelancing, organizing with and caring for my community. More...
