About

I grew up a traveling adventurer and wilderness rambler, telling tall  tales, making up imaginary worlds and creating lots of art.  

Today, I'm a journalist, writer, director, and producer who tells visual stories about unique heroes breaking barriers worldwide, many of whom are women. I wake up every day full of gratitude and passionate for what I do.  

In 2015, I got my Masters in Multimedia Journalism & Documentary Filmmaking from Columbia University in New York City. 

I've  shot multimedia content on 4 continents that has been published by  NBC Nightly News, The Food Network, Telemundo, The Today Show, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, PopSugar, Vox, Eater, Miami Herald, In Cuba Today, Narrative.ly, GreenBiz, Fresh Cup , Coffee Talk , IF C Center, Global City NYC, and Heritage Radio.

I helped develop and directed POPSUGAR’s first original documentary series "PopDocs," showcasing women breaking barriers around the globe, and "Heirloom",  a series about the hidden backstories of multi-generation, family-run restaurants across America for EATER.

I've directed, shot, and edited independent documentary films including "Cuba’s Violin" (2014), a bilingual story about a violin donation that stealthily travels from NYC to Havana into the hands of talented young musician, which screened at film festivals worldwide and can be watched  on 5 digital publications in the US and Cuba, and "Blind Date" (2015), a character-driven documentary that follows a diverse set of blind New Yorkers on their quest for love  in the digital age, which screened at festivals nationwide including DOCNYC, Nevada International Film Festival, and Middlebury Film Festival.

I truly love the art of an interview ,and sometimes I work as an interviewer for other directors. In addition, I am an on-camera host and field correspondent. I've interviewed world leaders and culture icons at major events including  the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, New York.

Over the last decade, I've worked with multinational brands on sustainability media, which informs my work directing sponsored content. I've made content for clients including Ketel One, Chevrolet, DressBarn, Rosetta, Manchester United, and Capital Group.

I have built national conferences, spoken at dozens of events including 'Sustainable Brands' and 'Summit Series,' and consulted with entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Asia on building sustainability-focused media into their businesses.

Back in the day, I graduated in Phi Beta Kappa with two B.A. degrees Summa Cum Laude in Global & International Studies and French from the University of California at Santa Barbara and L'Institut Catholique in Paris, France.
