I am an award-winning documentary producer, director, videographer and editor. My feature documentary project "High Sierra - A Journey on the John Muir Trail" won Best Documentary at the 2012 Cape Fear Independent Film Festival as well as the Sierra Nevada award at the 2011 Mountain Film Awards. I've spent time in Central America shooting travel videos for National Geographic Expeditions and in remote parts of Alaska working on a documentary project in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. A credentialed camera for high profile events including the Democratic National Convention, presidential campaigns and professional and collegiate sports, I understand the importance of positive energy, professionalism and putting my subjects at ease.
I'm currently working as a freelance producer in San Francisco, New York and everywhere in between. Company profiles, client testimonials, docs, branded content, music videos, ENG work... the list goes on!
I'm also a proficient video editor and continue to edit and produce for CNN on their Image and Sound team for multiple nationally and internationally broadcast news programs whenever I am in New York.
Previously a shooter/editor for the PBS station in North Carolina, my heart is in Public Television.
I'm also married to a phenomenal woman and video producer named Mimi. We make a great team!
