User Bio

I began my production career working with Keith Griffiths and Simon Field (the 2010 winners of the Palme d’Or) on television arts documentaries for Channel 4 London and the BBC. I have also worked with a number of independent filmmakers, including, with support by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the production of the documentary film “Late City Final: Motion Pictures from the End of Times Square” with director/D.P.’s Jem Cohen and Jeff Preiss. In addition to my work on various corporate and commercial productions, I also worked on a series of television projects for Sheila Nevins at HBO, including the feature documentary film, “Dragtime,” which I co-produced for HBO’s America Undercover series. I was nominated for a New York Emmy Award for Outstanding Fine Arts Programming for "Bruce Davdison – Making Contact" for WNET's "City Arts" series which I produced and directed. I was also a staff producer for the Metro Channel’s Gotham TV series during which time I produced a number of documentary segments as well as a series of short pieces with comic Marc Maron (for which Maron won a NY Emmy). I was a producer on the independent documentary film "The Desert is No Lady" (Women Make Movies) and also developed a pilot for the intended music series “The Edge of Brooklyn” with Ravi Coltrane in conjunction with City Lights Media Group and Context Studios. More recently I completed an independently produced documentary, Nobody Knows, about men in long-term relationships. I've also produced long form music videos for the song Luna Park by Torne Lake and for Blackt Out from the Lee Ranaldo and the Dust Matador release, Last Night on Earth. I am currently producing a feature documentary on the recording of the new Lee Ranaldo album, Electric Trim, and working with artist Leah Singer to produce Coasting, a short form, web-based video series.
