I headed up NationSwell's video department from 2013-2014. We made short films about people and projects that attempt to make the world better.

I'm currently a video journalist with Quartz where I get to work on a very wide range of stories from business-savy Uber drivers, to Muslim cartoonists, to drones.
This Uber driver sells his jewelry out of his car, and made a quarter million dollars last year.

International Reporting Project
While working at TIME, I was given the opportunity to travel abroad with an organization called International Reporting Project. I spent three weeks in Indonesia in 2011, and three weeks in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Here are a few of the videos that came from those trips.

I co-produced a documentary about Franco "The Great", a street-artist in Harlem who has been painting elaborate murals on the store-front gates around the neighborhood (they are typically covered in graffiti).
The film aired nationwide in 2011 on a show called AfroPop, on PBS World.

Department of Transportation
I spent a few weekends in the summer of 2013 producing these videos for NYC's Department of Transportation. Each year they put on a series of events called Summer Streets. This interactive art project was part of that series.

This documentary is about Kainat Soomro, a 13-year-old teenager in Pakistan who accuses four men of rape and faces execution by her village elders. It is both inspiring and enraging. I am proud to have played a tiny part in its production. I assisted with editing and sound editing.

I helped out on a bunch of Pitchfork shoots when I was in journalism school. This interview of the Loneley Island by Fred Armisen was the most enjoyable. The hardest part was trying to keep the camera still while laughing.
