Documentary Film Series: Uncovering Passion
In 2017, I created a film series that highlighted inspiring individuals who are pursuing their passion. Each film in the Uncovering Passion series is a three-minute glimpse into the life of someone who is striving to create a life filled with passion and joy. The subjects answer questions about how they discovered what excites them and how they have built a life around the things they love. With humor and honesty, they reflect on the choices and experiences that have moved them along their winding paths.

Full Length Documentary Films and TV Series
I have worked as an associate producer for Smithsonian Channel, Animal Planet, and other well-known channels. These are a few examples of the shows I have worked on for these channels.
Mysteries at the Museum
Each episode of Mysteries at the Museum requires historical images and footage. I located these assets, obtained hi-resolution copies and cleared rights for the images for many episodes of the show.
Monsters Inside Me
While working on Monsters Inside Me, I spoke with many individuals who had endured difficult parasitic and bacterial infections that had left them in the hospital. I worked to find interview subjects for the show and assisted in simplifying complex medical concepts into graphic mockups.
For monumental mysteries, I located visuals assets, obtained hi-resolution copies and cleared rights for various episodes of this show.
Working at Smithsonian on SEAL Dog was an incredible opportunity to learn about military working dogs. I met and worked closely with a former Navy SEAL and his trained german shepherd, Chopper. We filmed at military locations, interviewed military personnel and gathered extensive footage. I coordinated production for our off-site producer and ensured that the process went smoothly.
Islands of Creation
I worked closely with the filmmakers of this show, Nathan Dappen and Neil Losin, to obtain all footage and clearances needed. I also created an animated linguistics graphic for the final show.
