Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I... right... I am a storyteller. I like to travel and see
different lives, different experiences. I am a film director (both
documentary and fiction) so my work fits right into that. I don't
call it my job because it's what I love to do and I am grateful
every night I go to bed that I get to do what I love. My world is
large and that I get to see a lot of it. And there are certain
moments where you are witnessing or participating in something
really special - a moment of... humanity. Sounds cheesy. It is I
know! But that doesn't mean its not true. I am originally from
California but have been in New York for 11 years now. I am open to
live anywhere and have (England, Sweden and Mexico) but haven't
quite found another place that fits me better than Brooklyn yet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Traveling a lot. Last year alone I have been to Kenya, Mexico,
Russia, Ukraine creating film pieces I am really happy with. I
enjoy learning and growing. And I try to photograph every sunset so
that I take the time to respect the passing of each day. Needless
to say I'm not perfect so it doesn't always happen.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with people. Understanding them. Empathizing and seeing
their pov. I like to inspire others and be inspired. I enjoy
teaching, sharing and telling stories. And sometimes I'm even
funny. Even hilarious-fall off your chair-hilarious. Yes, that's
me? I'm a master host and I can wash dishes like no other. It may
take me a long time but it's one of my favorite things to do. Who
washes dishes anymore, right? Me. I do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Ok. So I love a lot of things. But in some ways I'm almost Amish in
that popular culture flies over my head. I don't have a TV. I don't
read magazines. I prefer books, films, theatre, ballet (yeah I love
watching ballet, just amazing to express emotion and tell a story
with body movement). I can't believe I just wrote that. Wow, I'm a
cheese ball fest.
I think key word for me in everything is the word "yet." It's like
someone asks have you seen this, or heard that, or read that... And
my answer if I haven't is "not yet." There's just too much out
there not to tap into and learn. I studied philosophy at Oxford and
Cal and learned that you can't say everything. There is no real
ultimate truth. It's all just choices and experiences and
connections. So experience it. Live it. And be grateful for it all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Doing what I love. Creating. (my films, photography)
- Seeing the world. Experiencing new things. (traveling near and
- Friends and community. (hosting dinners at home)
- Exercise. Connecting with my body. (swimming, boxing, running,
yoga, bike riding, soccer)
- Feeling connected to others. (hearing other people's stories,
- Spontaneous adventures. (look and you'll find)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Making the most of this experience called life...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either up for anything or at home recovering from the week of work.
