REEL        NARRATIVE       DOCUMENTARY       COMMERCIAL       BIO/CONTACT 


I am an American cinematographer with over a decade of experience in the film industry.  I’m known for an emotionally resonant, poetic naturalism. I love the challenge of finding new ways to bring complex stories to the screen.

I’ve shot for National Geographic, HBO, Vice News, Showtime, Channel4, and Disney on issues such as  political conflict, women’s rights, wildlife conservation, gender identity, and the intersection of art and technology. I’m attracted to stories about marginalized cultures and visionary outsiders. 

I’m a  member of the Society of Camera Operators, I  shoot aerials (FAA-107 certified), enjoy shooting underwater (PADI certified diver), am a Phantom technician, and make my own hot sauce.

I received my BFA from Pratt Institute, and my   MFA in cinematography from the American Film Institute Conservatory.

Season two of the Emmy nominated show The World According to Jeff Goldblum, which I shot for National Geographic earlier this year, is currently up on Disney+. 

I’m currently shooting a feature-length documentary for HBO on transgender activists.
