i have worked as an editor, producer and director across a vast array of genres including commercials, reality television, independent features and web television.

web series

the digressions | co-director | editor

'the digressions' — named best web series of the year by the online magazine snobby robot — is a web series I shot, edited and co-produced. it began with short 3-5 minute episodes in season 1. in season 2, we pushed ourselves to create longer episodes, and in our final season, season 3, we decided to take it one step further and shoot the season as a feature, which we released in four part on the web. in their review of the series, indiefilter said, "the digressions shows us how far an interesting concept and a tight script can take an indie web series." read the full review. above is the first episode of our final season. the entire series can be found at www.thedigressions.com

unscripted television

wendt crazy | producer | editor

this is a reality series i developed, shot, edited and co-produced with my brother. the series was named as an official selection of the new york television festival and was a finalist for a&e network's unscripted development pipeline.

maloof money cup | editor

this is a portion of the maloof money cup skateboarding competition that I edited for broadcast on fox. for this project I collaborated with the producer and a team of editors to determine the story arc and main characters for the piece. to create the story, i mixed audio from several sources including camera audio, body mics, wild audio and announcer feeds to finish and deliver the 1-hour special for network broadcast on an extremely tight schedule.

feature films

this is the trailer for a feature film I co- excecutive produced and edited called pure shock value by furious films. the film was the centerpiece feature of the hollywood fringe film festival.

arts mini-flicks

gifts from the vineyard | editor | director | camera

for the holiday season, vineyard theatre wanted patrons to keep in mind the many gifts that the company is able to offer new york audiences, artists and our community so we brought together artists like actor david hyde pierce, playwright tarell alvin mccraney, and student jennifer vasquez to talk about the gifts the vineyard has given them.

2016-2017 season teaser | producer | editor

i created this video to promote vineyard theatre's 2016-2017 season on social media and on street-level video screens. the footage is all events and b-roll that i shot for the company, and i created the title graphics in after effects.

'the landing' broadcast commercial :30 | director | editor | camera

shooting a commercial within the confines of a small, off-broadway theatre budget can be a challenge. using actors from the show is typically cost prohibitive, so for vineyard theatre, i developed a technique of bringing the key art of the show to life, which I used for both john kander's world premiere musical 'the landing' and jenny schwartz's new play 'somewhere fun'. both of these commercials ran on NY1.

gigantic promotional videos | director | editor

this is part of a fun series of videos I made for the musical gigantic. they are meant to give you a taste of several of the main characters before they set out for camp overton, the no. 3 weight-loss camp in southern pennsylvania, where the musical takes place. you can see the full series here.

playwritegirl | producer | editor | director | one man crew

on a spring morning at the pasadena playhouse, 150 'writegirls', mentors, volunteers and staff took up residence at pasadena playhouse. they workshopped and wrote from 9am to 4pm. this video was both shot and edit by me as a one-man-crew during that time. two hours later that same evening, this video that i completed on site was shown to an audience of over 600 people.

pasadena playhouse board match | producer | editor | director  

this is the first arts mini-flick i did, which i shot and edited for the pasadena playhouse. the company received a $10,000 donation the day the video was released by a donor who was moved by the video.
