About me

 

I am an independent filmmaker and director of photography working in London and New York. With over 15 years of industry experience, my work has been featured at the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals, broadcast nationally, and has collected numerous awards along the way. Throughout my career I have worked on projects ranging from social issue documentaries to political satire comedy shows, all contributing to a unique perspective on storytelling where compassion and humor work side by side. My past two films "American Renaissance" (2015) and "Bending Steel" (2013) have both premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and have gone on to screen in cinemas worldwide. The feature-length "Bending Steel" aired on DirecTV, won both the Emerging Cinematic Vision and Audience Awards at the Camden International Film Festival, and was nominated for the Cinema Eye Honors Spotlight Award. On the small screen, I was a director of photography for the Emmy Award winning "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" for nearly 10 years, and have recently been brought along by former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee to lens her new late night show on TBS, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee". As an owner/operator of the Sony FS7 4K Cinema Camera, I am available for hire on both union and non-union narrative and documentary films, television productions, commercials, and branded content.
