senior creative producer
                    + director


I'm a creative producer and director based in Los Angeles, and working throughout the country. 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 commercial 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 stories, and I bring a natural empathy to my work with on-camera talent in order to support authentic and compelling performances.

Before working in advertising, 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 events producer; and as a freelance writer for Filmmaker Magazine.

I have an MFA in Film Directing 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 mother was a designer in the fashion industry in New York City; and my father redesigned and rebuilt Victorian homes in Philadelphia.
