Producer, Editor, Director

I help make media to be used by the Lab and conservation organizations around the world.

I lived in Brooklyn, New York, for nearly twenty years before moving to Ithaca, New York, with my family. In my previous life, I edited feature films, documentaries, and both scripted and unscripted TV shows. Though I enjoyed this work, I appreciate how working at the Lab and helping to make conservation media enables me to participate in something larger than myself.
