BIO

I’m a filmmaker & line producer who specializes in documentary and short form work. I was most recently supervising producer of Vox’s Glad You Asked , a YouTube Originals show that explores cultural & scientific topics like: Will we survive Mars? Why do memes matter? And what happens when we die? Earlier this year, I directed a short doc for Signal Press that featured New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Power, Cass Sunstein, and Katy Tur of NBC.

My passion is making work that inspires social change. I have been developing She Is Syria, an IFP-sponsored documentary that looks at how the political changes in Syria ruptured the lives of Syrian women. In 2016, I worked with Global Citizen to bring Olympic Refugee Team swimmer Yusra Mardini and activist Sarah Mardini to be part of the United Nations General Assembly. She Is Syria shorts & photo essays have been featured in The New York Post, Marie Claire, Refinery29, Brooklyn Live TV, and the Berlin Unframed Festival.
