What's up! I'm a cinematographer based in Brooklyn, NY. 
A few things I've been up to: last year I shot Chicks, a short horror-comedy about a teenage sleepover that turns pretty dark; this was my third time collaborating with director Geena Marie Hernandez. In 2021, I worked with director Antonio Méndez Esparza [2018 John Cassavetes Independent Spirit Award] on three documentaries highlighting Florida's Early Childhood Court System, as DP and editor. Back in 2019, I won a Student Emmy for my short documentary Woman of Steel, which highlights Ashley Young's life as a self-proclaimed human cyborg with a bionic right arm. I love documentary just as much as I love narrative.   
I enjoy key gripping, gaffing, rigging challenges of any kind, and building out vans.
I also shoot 35mm stills, and self-develop all my rolls in my kitchen sink. Outside of filmmaking, I spend most of my down time on languages; I speak French at an intermediate level, and am working hard on my Spanish!
