I'm an Oakland based Filmmaker, DP and Creative Director bringing empathy, authenticity and beauty to branded content & documentary films. My background in photojournalism, non-profit and agency work allows me to find the emotional core behind my client’s stories.
In 2014, I co-founded the San Francisco based creative studio, Veldt. As Creative Director, I brought the feel goods to all aspects of production for clients including Uber Freight, Levi's, Intel, Twilio, Dignity Health, TOPIC, CNN, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Silicon Valley Bank.
Before this, I spent a decade as a Director / DP crafting documentary content in the U.S., East Africa and Central America. From concept to execution, I produced projects for clients such as the GE Foundation, Google, Microsoft, The Guardian, Al Jazzera International and The San Francisco Chronicle.
During this time, I was a Founding Member of the non-profit Mama Hope - an organization focused on collaborative grassroots global development. Living and working with our East African partner communities, I co-created the Stop the Pity social video series to fight media stereotyping of poverty. The series received millions of views, a Webby nomination and was featured in The Washington Post, CNN, BBC, MSNBC, Al Jazeera International, TheGuardian and many more.
You can find me in the cosmos. Come say, hi.
