I shoot, produce, direct, and edit with a specialization in (and unabashed love of) documentary narratives. Since 2014 I have worked as an editorial producer at Refinery29, where I piloted the intimate, unapologetically feminist, body positive video content that continues to influence the brand's video aesthetic. In my spare time, I make music videos and collaborate with friends.
I grew up in rural Iowa and North Carolina, and I studied journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Now I'm based in Los Angeles, and I travel as much as possible. My hair no longer looks like that.
