Film Projects


I’m a four-time Emmy award-winning television photojournalist and the recipient of a 2023 Regional Edward R Murrow award who has worked in television journalism for 25 years. In 2016, I moved into documentary filmmaking where my cinematography work includes FRONTLINE: Plot to Overturn the Election (2022) for PBS/GBH; and Flint (2020) for Montrose Pictures Ltd. I’m co-producing and DP-ing one project about a young Chinese adoptee who is on a journey to discover her origin story. I have a current passport, I am fully vaccinated, and will travel worldwide. I’m also a commercial drone pilot. I’m a member of the International Documentary Association, NATAS, and, of course, The D-Word.
