I make motion pictures, stories that you watch, video journalism, short and long films. Film, edit, develop stories.

Currently based in Seattle, I am a video journalist for The Seattle Times, where I collaborate with a small video team and staff photojournalists to produce engaging, character-driven stories that explore social issues, news, and the diversity and uniquity of the Seattle community.

Previously, I filmed and produced multimedia and video projects for the Open Society Foundations. Before that, I worked as a video journalist for The Boston Globe and interned with The Roanoke Times.

I earned a master’s degree in journalism with a focus on visual communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2010. I’ve led, managed and collaborated with teams on ambitious multimedia projects, and have taught multimedia storytelling and video production to students and professionals. I’m currently working on a longterm documentary film called ‘Spilling Over’, focusing on the lasting effects of the BP oil spill on a family and community in Venice, La., with my partner Jessey Dearing.

I believe that personal stories are crucial to creating real change, locally and globally.
