I'm a creative producer and director based in Los Angeles. I’ve created work for top advertising agencies including Media.Monks, 72andSunny, Droga5 and Havas. I’ve 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.
