I'm a filmmaker, photographer, and actor located in New York City, receiving my MFA from Columbia University's School of the Arts in Screenwriting and Directing. 

I taught fiction filmmaking in Harvard University's Visual and Environmental Studies program alongside  Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin. I have also worked with Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris, as well as Oscar-nominated director/producer Athina Tsangari. 

I studied film and history, while an undergraduate at Harvard, and also performed with the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, America's oldest theater troupe. I was awarded the Jonathan Levy Award for most promising actor at the University and an Artist Development Fellowship to film a documentary on Jackson Hole, China entitled Far West

I like to collect ties, classic Hawaiian shirts, and the currency of deposed dictators. I don't like to collect/find-myself-in-the-general-vicinity-of velcro or umbrellas.
