As a filmmaker and director of photography I bring a gritty realism to my work yet infuse it with a sense of humor and pathos. I am endlessly inspired by people, and have worked intimately with celebrities like Elaine Stritch to tuberculosis victims in the slums of Delhi.

I recently was the director/cinematographer for the film MENASHE (SUNDANCE) that will be released theatrically by A24 in summer 2017.

As a cinematographer my work has shown at international film festivals including Sundance, Berlin, and Tribeca. In the advertising world my directing has been nominated for a Cannes Lion and in journalism I have been awarded a first place POY for multimedia project of the year.

I directed the feature documentaries DRIVERS WANTED (PBS) and FLYING ON ONE ENGINE (SXSW). I have also collaborated with the NY Time’s Op-Docs on multiple shorts including HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR BAND and SUBWAY BALLET.

I have lectured on film at Duke, NYU, Vanderbilt, and many others universities. I am an alumnus of Boston University College of Communication Film department, an alumnus of the CPB/PBS Producers Academy at WGBH, an IFP Filmmaker Labs fellow, and two time recipient of the NEA funded Southern Circuits Arts Tour. I used to play bass in the hardcore band Trophy Scars. I was born and currently reside in New York City.
