I’m a documentary filmmaker and visual journalist based in New York City. I currently collaborate with Muck Media where I’ve produced and directed several documentary series for your favorite streaming networks.

Most recently I was a producer at ABC News Nightline where I frequently covered immigration, but my interests and skills are varied. In the past, I've produced and directed feature-length documentary projects for theatrical release, TV broadcast, and streaming.

I've worked at a number of news outlets including Univision, Fusion Media Group, The Miami Herald, The New York Times, The Guardian, and The Economist.

I have a Masters in Science from the Journalism School at Columbia University, where I also occasionally teach. I’m an adjunct professor at New York University Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. And I love my dog Cashew.
