I'm passionate about storytelling, the world and the visual arts. I particularly love the challenge of interpreting "difficult" topics in a way that is dramatic and visually compelling yet true to the subject.
As a director and writer, I find the most effective way to tell your story while working within the constraints of your production budget and schedule.
As an editor, I work with original footage and discover the story within, or I can collaborate with your team to find what best captures your ideas.
For 20 years I produced video and other media for the American Museum of Natural History. At AMNH I conceived, produced, directed and edited a wealth of media programs for exhibits ranging from large-scale, atmospheric installations, to introductory theater programs to interactive media elements.
