About me

I’m a filmmaker working at Vice Media, where I create content that reaches millions of viewers through their multiple channels — vice.com, Munchies, i-D, Noisey, Broadly and Viceland TV. My experience includes long and short-form documentaries, mini-series, branded content, socials, and trailers. Other collaborations include projects with The Guardian Labs and Al Jazeera.
