I am a documentary filmmaker specializing in commercial and long-form storytelling for broadcast and brands.
The Wall Street Journal has called my work "strangely riveting" and I am pretty sure that's a compliment.
In NYC, I learned to be effective, scrappy and excellent. In Milwaukee, I learned how to do it while being nice. I'm a director, a producer and a creative. I'm at my best when bringing all three hammers to the table.
Getting my start in broadcast, I honed a candid, nimble production style. My broadcast credits include NBC Olympics, A&E's Accused: Guilty or Innocent, Crossfit Games, Soledad O'Brien's Matter of Fact along with various shows on VH1, MTV and Bravo.
While I still love jumping into the insanely challenging world of broadcast, I tend to work mainly on the commercial side these days; directing award winning content for brands like Harley-Davidson, MSN, Carmex, Northwestern Mutual, Neutrogena, CDC, JDRF, Rockwell Automation, Brady, Jet Blue and LSU.
I love directing narrative but my sweet spot is working with real people and their real, raw and honest stories. The single greatest compliment I've ever received is, "you told my story better than I ever could have." Ok, fine, that's not an actual compliment I've heard but it's what I strive for every. single. time.
My ability to mine emotion out of any situation is my secret weapon – from the deeply emotional to the raucously hilarious. I can put anyone at ease in front of the camera and I intuitively understand the big picture.
I have won multiple awards for my work including a Sports Emmy with NBC Olympics and the International Corporate Citizenship Film Festival.
I will crush you at trivia on the topic of olympic sports but ONLY that topic. Very poor loser when it comes to card games - that last bit is unrelated to my career highlights but important to know.
My current passion project is creating a documentary series about gymnastics called The Flight Series
