A graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, I'm now a director and producer looking for new ways to find and tell stories- whether that be through film, photos, or words. 

Formerly a commercial producer at Droga5 and an editor at Firstborn.

Director of the short film "Shallows" and also for the documentary series for 30 Mosques in 30 Days. My first feature length documentary, "Two Gods", is currently in post-production and has recently received support from ITVS, Tribeca Film Institute, Sundance Institute, Points North Institute and HotDocs. It will be completed and released in 2019.

Born and raised in Ohio. Currently based in Harlem.
