I work at the intersection of journalism and cinema, striving for organic dynamic scenes devoid of tropes. My goal is to let story and visceral presence emerge in every frame. I began my career as a photojournalist: covering daily news, environmental and political stories in Montana and Northern New Mexico for some of the best newspapers in the region. Over the past 10 years I’ve worked as a producer and cinematographer on films and series for Al Jazeera, HBO, Netflix, National Geographic and PBS in more than 20 countries and in some of the most challenging environments one can take a camera. I crossed the equatorial Pacific on a catamaran made of plastic, dodged berthing icebergs in Greenland, navigated disputed territory in South Sudan, and negotiated access in the tribal areas of Pakistan. My work for Fault Lines has won an Emmy and Peabody, my work for an HBO documentary with director Steven Okazaki was nominated for an Oscar. I prefer to work with a light foot-print and I shoot almost everything handheld. I’m looking for intimacy, for raw moments of action and tension, and for fresh cinematic ways of capturing this complicated and beautiful world of ours.
