I am a visual storyteller and the cofounder of KitSplit, a community marketplace for cameras and related equipment.
Previously, I was a video and multimedia producer at The New Yorker. As the second full-time member of the video department, I helped build the then-young department, worked on hundreds of video and multimedia stories from start to finish, and managed the relaunch of a new video hub at video.newyorker.com. I got to direct, product and edit video and multimedia packages on a wide range of subjects, from Strandbeests to a Webby-nominated project on human rights in Egypt...and got to work with luminaries like Gay Talese, Joyce Carol Oates, and Woody Allen.
I've done freelance photography and video work for clients including Vogue, The Guardian, JP Morgan, and Makerbot. Projects I’ve worked on have been featured in Slate, NewYorker.com, and GQ, and honored by The Webbys, Picture of the Year International, FotoWeek DC, PIEA, and more; and in 2017 I was named a Forbes "30 Under 30" in media.
I’m also a graduate of ITP, While there, I performed a live drawing + video projection piece at Museum of the Moving Image; made a Dronie Photobooth covered by Fast Company; explored innovations in image processing and visual storytelling; and learned how to code, among other fun projects.
At KitSplit, I focus on building the community + product. KitSplit helps filmmakers, photographers, and artists get the gear they need to make their work. Our members include thousands of photographers and filmmakers as well as companies like National Geographic, Vox, and NBC.
