Be the change you wish to see in the world.

The old quote still applies as my story traces exploration to impact. My journey to profile green businesses via documentary film production and new media led to co-founding Bootstrap Compost, a company spearheading residential composting in Boston. Since 2011, Bootstrap Compost has diverted over 600,000 lbs of organic materials from landfills, in turn empowering the food system by creating a valuable resource - compost - for local food growers.

I’ve worked in a variety of sectors and settings. I’ve produced documentary shorts for America SCORES, Boston Organics, City Year, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and MIT; I’ve been published in Backpacker Magazine and Natural Awakenings; I’ve spoken at Boston College, Harvard, Northeastern and MIT. Through my efforts and with my skills in business development, communications and film production, I aim to leave a positive mark on the world. Please let me know how I can help you.
