About

Let’s work together.


I’m a video producer located in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve spent the last few years working at InCA Films, a documentary production company with over 30 years of credits, as well taking on freelance work.

I’ve produced three feature documentaries and a variety of short doc and commercial videos. I love collaborating on developing a vision and a plan to execute it, and I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in all stages of production. It’s always a thrill to shoot, I love the obsession of editing, and I’m fastidious about organization and technical details.

I also draw from experience in a lot of diverse fields. I’ve worked in live and live-to-tape production for Public Access TV, art directed and edited ISIS magazine for OSPL publishing house, produced graphic design, animation and illustration for a variety of brands, and also spent a great deal of time researching and writing for my history degree at the University of Oxford.

Whatever you need, I can pitch, script, storyboard, work hands-on in production and manage projects right through to final delivery.

I’m always looking for new projects so please get in touch.
