As a filmmaker, I strive to tell stories that challenge and inspire viewers.  As a Director of Photography, I compose and light with the intent of developing a cinematic language that is true to the story.

My credits as Director of Photography vary from several feature documentaries including The U(ESPN’s 30 for 30 Series), Limelight (Tribeca Film Festival 2011), Square Grouper (SXSW 2011) and Spectrum of Hope (Sundance Now Doc Club 2016), to general market television programming like “I am Frankie” for Viacom International, music videos for Sony Music and Universal Music Group, and an array of commercial work.

My directorial debut, the feature documentary A Todo Color, premiered at The Sheffield International Documentary Festival 2016, one of the three largest documentary festivals in the world (also participating in Hot Docs – Film and Music Series and winning Best Documentary in XicanIndie Festival).

“It’s always better to shock people and change people’s expectations than to give them exactly what they think you can do.”   – Jonah Hill
