Art Meets Story

My passion is creating transformative works of art with story.

Woven within any powerful story is the intimate moments of humanity that speak louder than words. It’s these moments that have become the foundation of all my work. I use storytelling to captivate audiences in ways that transcends boundaries and differences. It’s through story that I find a voice with a conscious means of informing, entertaining, and ultimately bringing people together.

As a freelance documentary filmmaker and photographer I also partner with organizations around the world to document social impact through film, photo and interactive design. Together we craft powerful works of art that speak louder than traditional media.

Using story to captivate, connect and invariably change lives.
