My work as a cinematographer, documentary filmmaker, and videojournalist has included projects for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, PBS, Discovery Channel, and many other media outlets, educational institutions, foundations, companies, and independent documentaries. I have worked on videos that have been part of a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times explanatory reporting package, won two College Television Awards (a.k.a. Student Emmys), and been a Student Academy Awards national finalist.
I love that my job is to become a serial expert on interesting people doing interesting things, all over the world. I’ve shot in Kenya, Spain, Switzerland, Senegal, Liberia, Azerbaijan, the Philippines, Haiti, and all around the USA.
A graduate of UT Austin’s Radio-TV-Film department and of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism’s documentary program, I have been freelancing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007.
From 2004 to 2006, I served as a Peace Corps sustainable agriculture volunteer in Senegal, West Africa, where I worked with farmers and my host village women’s group to improve crop production and generate income. I returned to Senegal in 2009 to shoot my graduate thesis film, Feast & Sacrifice. In 2015, I hiked all 2,650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada.
A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I don’t have much of a Southern accent, but I do say “y’all.”
