I am a producer/director known for making authored observational documentaries about sensitive subjects, and I build strong relationships with the people whose stories I tell. I self-shoot many of my films, currently on a Canon C300, and also work with DoPs.
I am involved with every aspect of production, from coming up with the ideas to negotiating access, research, casting contributors, plotting the story and finally editing the film with an editor. I have worked a lot in the US and have an I Visa.
I am interested in telling strong stories for both television and theatrical release, and am currently developing a number of ideas.
