I'm an award-winning documentary filmmaker who cut my teeth interning with Ken Burns while getting a degree in documentary film studies at Hampshire College. My first film, Ten Days, Ten Years: Slovenia’s War for Independence, won the Best Five-College Filmmaker award at the 2003 Northampton Independent Film Festival. After working as an Associate Producer and Assistant Editor with an Oscar-nominated film company in Northampton, MA, I returned home to Vermont and set up my own independent film studio, which has been solar-powered since 2011. Producing independent films and freelance work for the past decade, I have focused on human-interest stories. My 2006 film, Mind Games: A Love Story, revealed Dr. Thomas French’s final year with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The film was screened at the Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival, won a Director’s Award at the Hearts and Minds Film Festival and was presented on Vermont Public Television. I have served as my town's Second Constable and worked for six years as a Special Education Program Assistant at the Woodstock Union High School. I currently serve on the boards of The Carol A. Hurley Memorial Scholarship Fund, the Barnard Community Trust, the Barnard Energy Committee and The Kennels of Levi, a non-profit organization dedicated to training service dogs. In 2011, I was appointed to represent the towns of Barnard, Pomfret, Quechee, and West Hartford in the Vermont legislature and sit on the House Agriculture & Forest Products Committee.
I have been freelancing for years and my clients include the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, the Vermont Historical Society, the ALS Association, RSVP/The Volunteer Center, the Doula Project of Washington County Mental Services, Counterpoint Chorus, and Collective Actions PAC.
