I'm a freelance producer and editor. At least that's the medical term for it (you can view my experience here). Above all, I consider myself a storyteller. I have stories for days.
BTW– I’m also the Director of Workshops in New York for a creative community of non-fiction filmmakers called Video Consortium. You should check us out.
Things I like: branded content, EPKs, music videos and explainers.
Things I love: videos that make you laugh and cry, all at once.
I will go so far as to jump into a pool of sprinkles to get the right shot.
I've spent a lot of time in the edit room. So I took this very meta photo.
A true Canon lover, I produced a short doc all about Canon cinestyle cameras. Try saying that sentence five times in a row.
There I am (second from the left) with Geena Davis in LA, debuting our video series at her first annual symposium for GDIGM. Geena is a BU alum just like me and I find that to be pretty neat.
Growing up, I always dreamed of becoming a filmmaker but never thought my dreams could become a reality.
While trying to fulfill my “science requirement” in college, I found myself in a class called Cinema Physics. Four weeks in, and I realized that this class was indeed not as much about cinema, as it was about physics. I dropped out before the first test and picked up my first production class. I've never looked back.
I'm inspired by telling great stories about great people. And so far, I've been lucky enough to do just that.
After I graduated, I was selected to be part of No nonsense's Socks for America campaign, and drove across the country with my best friend, donating socks to people in need and filming a documentary about homelessness in America. As someone who loves a good social mission and has a paralyzing fear of driving– this was a big deal for me.
I've worked on everything from EPKs and music videos (yes, I’ve met Ricky Martin!) to commercials and branded content. Over the past few years, I’ve delved into the world of social video and digital media. I worked at NowThis as a Senior Creative Producer for original series, and most recently, I spearheaded the development, launch and creation of Great Big Story’s Snapchat Discover channel.
But the projects I'm most proud of are still those personal stories, specifically the ones about my family. Last year I completed a series of short, animated Holocaust documentaries called The Podkamieners, which tells the story of how my family hid in the woods at the peak of WWII.
Well, don't say I didn't warn you. Stories for days.
