Bio

Public Bio

I am a producer and cinematographer based in Seattle with over 20 years experience working on projects for PBS, Discovery and
National Geographic. Most recently I was the Senior Producer at KSTW (Seattle) where I was the Series Producer for "Underground", a two-time Emmy Award winning documentary series on Northwest musicians, artists and artisans. Feature length documentaries on which I served as the Director of Photography include "Earth Days", Robert Stone's film on the origins of the environmental movement which premiered as the Closing Night film at Sundance; "Sentenced Home", an ITVS-funded feature documentary about the deportation of Cambodian-Americans that won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival; and "Poetic License", a film about young spoken word poets working their way towards the National Poetry Slam.
