I’m a documentary filmmaker, producer and photographer currently based between Portland, Oregon and Bangalore, India. Previously, I was a producer at Blue Chalk Media in Portland and in Chicago as a multimedia resident at the Chicago Tribune.
I received my Master’s degree in Visual Communication from Ohio University, where I also taught photojournalism and picture editing courses. During graduate school, I interned at the Daily Herald newspaper.
As a perpetually curious person, I read endlessly and ask a lot of questions. Whether through images, audio, video, or writing—my aim is to promote critical thinking, understanding and respect. I'm most drawn to making work that examines how environmental and economic changes affect marginalized or indigenous communities. I've produced films for several NGOs that deal with issues related to women and children’s healthcare and education.
I am available for assignments — both video and still.
