I'm a filmmaker, photographer, and video journalist based in San Francisco. I've produced work for The New York Times, CNN, People Magazine, Reuters, the BBC, NBC, NowThis, Seeker, AJ+, Univision, Vice, Pacific Standard, Singapore Airlines, Starbucks, Indigenous Media, the Center for Public Integrity, and Light Reading, among others. I've also edited hundreds of videos for AJ+.
My most recent feature film, They Live Here, Now, premiered at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, and my work has played at many film festivals worldwide. Basically, I like movies a lot. I like talking about them, making them, reading about them, and of course, watching them. The same goes for photography. If you're interested in commenting on my work, sharing your own work, or potentially collaborating, please feel free to get in touch. As far as non-filmmaking/photography activities, I like long distance running, the Spanish (fluent!) and Portuguese (getting there!) languages, and playing banjo.
