Creative filmmaker with extensive experience in film production, journalism, non-profit communications, and healthcare reporting. Award-winning and multilingual writer, producer, director, and editor. I am skilled in cinematography, video editing, directing, producing, and scriptwriting. I work well as both a one-person filmmaker/cinematographer as well as part of a crew. I was most recently the creative lead at the American Institutes for Research, a non-profit that works on education, health, international development, and other social issues. In that role, I managed visual creative work and was involved in all aspects of video from pre-production planning to interviewing, filming, and editing for almost eight years. I previously worked as a web reporter at Kaiser Health News, where I covered health care issues for KHN and their partners including The Washington Post, NPR, MSNBC and McClatchy. I also have extensive international experience including in Latin America, Europe, and West Africa. I am finishing up a MFA in film at American University (expected 2020) and also hold a MS from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
