My Journey in film began in New York City 2001 with the documentation of the 9/11 events, which was recognized and published in feature movies by companies such as HBO, CNN, NHK, National Geographic and The History Channel. All of this work had global distribution with well over 35 million viewers, including an Emmy Award for the HBO publication. Since then I have found myself working on indie features, television commercials and music videos, and in roles such as director, director of photography, art director, graphic designer, and production assistant. Since the beginning of 2016, I began focusing my role in motion pictures as a director for commercial and independent projects.
