about me >>

I am an award-winning filmmaker whose work has appeared on PBS, Animal Planet, Discovery Kids as well as at film festivals around the world.  I've worked on dozens of public television pledge documentaries including KEN BURNS: AMERICA'S STORYTELLER as well as THE BRAIN FITNESS PROGRAM which became one of the most successful fundraising series in the history of public television.  I have over a decade of experience in pledge programming for PBS, as well as creating branded content for major corporations, organizations and universities.


my approach >>

I'm comfortable wearing any hat needed to get a project shot and finished.  I think in order to be an effective producer, you need to have a handle on what every position entails.  That said, you also need to empower each team member to contribute as much as possible.


getting the shot >>

...is about working with the right people and I hope we can do that together soon.
