I truly have a passion for documentary filmmaking. I love interviewing people and telling their stories and I've had the great pleasure to tell the stories of some amazing people. Two of my favorites that I've produced and worked on have been for the musical group The Woods Brothers, as well as a celebratory short documentary of the bay area auto-row car dealer and local staple Joe Putnam.

Shakespearience! is a wonderful non-profit educational program in northern California that goes into schools ranging from Kindergarten through High School and truly brings Shakespeare to life for students. 

Through my experience in theatre, I had the good fortune to work with the folks at Shakespearience! and work with the to help the program grow. During my time with them, I shot and edited a ton of mini-docs, promos, highlight reels and also put together a lot of art and design work for them, including creating their logo. It's a great program and I was honored to be apart of something so positive and beneficial to students.

I was incredibly lucky to have GamePro Magazine as my first job straight out of college.
