I make short-form videos that people love to share.

About Me
I make sizzle reels, ads, and social video.
I specialize in comedy, documentary, and social impact projects.
I love projects that are changing the world or challenging the status quo.

I started out as an intern at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, then went on to make hundreds of comedy videos with The Second City. From there, I went to work with media companies like Brave New Films, Fusion, Gizmodo, and Starburns Audio.

Recently, I’ve been focused on brand videos for social impact focused work.

About Me
My work has been featured on major media outlets like MSNBC, at SXSW, at film festivals in over 40 cities around the world, and hundreds of millions of times online.
I've grown client social followings by over 1.5 million fans and have overseen award-winning campaigns.
