I'm a creative producer and director based in Los Angeles, and working everywhere.
I’ve created work for top advertising agencies on both coasts, including 72andSunny, Droga5 and Havas. I have also produced and directed both editorial and advertising content for Condé Nast.
I’ve been trained as a storyteller and a filmmaker (documentary + narrative), and I draw upon this formal grounding in all my work.
I am most inspired by real human beings, and I bring a dedicated empathy and attention to my work with talent in order to support authentic and compelling performances.
Before working in advertising, I produced non-fiction television, where I learned to produce and direct quickly and nimbly with small crews in the field.
I spent my early years in New York City working in the independent film industry; as an assistant to directors and producers; as a shooter/producer for MTV; as a live event producer; and as a freelance writer for Filmmaker Magazine.
I have an MFA in Film Directing and Screenwriting from Columbia University, where my short films won top honors, and screened at festivals internationally.
I was born and raised in Philadelphia to creative parents: my mom was a designer in the fashion industry in New York City; and my dad redesigned and rebuilt Victorian homes in Philadelphia.
