My Story

I am a documentary producer, director, editor and co-founder of 590films. We specialize in producing films for non-profit, educational and socially repsonsible organizations. We make fundraising videos, public service announcements, and issue-based films. Two of our largest clients are the 135-year old Bowery Mission and the National Down Syndrome Society. My first feature length documentary, "Slumming It: Myth and Culture on the Bowery," about the history of the Bowery in New York City, aired on PBS in July 2005. My most recent documentary is "Into the Gyre," a film about plastic pollution in the Atlantic Ocean. The film has screened at numerous international film festivals and won four awards, including Best Picture at the 2012 Scinema Festival of Science Film. I am currently in production on "The Trees,"a film about the National September 11th Memorial plaza. I studied English and History at Amherst College.
