My journey into documentary film began out in the wild spaces of the American Southwest, at first as a student with a camera and a journal, and later on as an outdoor educator. With the nonprofit guiding company Deer Hill Expeditions and their partner Summer Search, I had the privilege of working with diverse student populations on immersive backpacking and cross-cultural community service expeditions. It was here in this incredible environment that I really began to develop a passion for intercultural communication, oral storytelling, and documentary filmmaking. I built upon these eye-opening experiences through my work as a Film and Video undergrad at Fitchburg State University, and as an editorial intern for WGBH World Channel and camera operator for Stories From The Stage. Continuing in this field, I recently completed an editorial internship with Northern Light Productions in Allston MA, and continue to develop my skills as a freelance filmmaker taking on projects in the Boston area.
As a media creator, my goal is to work with people from all walks of life to tell compelling, challenging, and educational stories, and to help others appreciate lives different from their own.
