I'm a nonfiction filmmaker whose work unites documentary traditions and social action. In 2020 I co-founded Denizen Studios, an interdisciplinary production company committed to sparking civic engagement through nonfiction storytelling. I've worked with Field of Vision, Doc Society, and Amnesty International. I'm a member of the Documentary Producers Alliance, where I sit on the Ethics Committee. I received my BFA in Film & TV from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and my MPA in Nonprofit Advocacy & Political Action from NYU Wagner School of Public Service. I reside on the land of the Lenape people and pay tribute to stewards past, present, and emerging.
