Selected Films

I’m a filmmaker and artist based in Los Angeles, California, originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. My movies combine research and embedded, surveillant camerawork with archival elements and sound design. I have screened at MoMA Doc Fortnight, Lincoln Center’s Art of The Real, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Visions du Réel and others. I have worked as a non-fiction cinematographer internationally, including the US, Brazil, China, the South Pacific, Europe and Central Africa, and have contributed to Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning documentaries which are distributed widely.
