View my portfolio

I am a producer working in development at The Documentary Group, where I help to manage a slate of premium documentaries and series. Recent films include the Academy Award-nominated "Cartel Land" (Winner, Best Director and Best Cinematography at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival), "When Lambs Become Lions" (Winner, Best Editing at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival), and the feature documentary and ongoing social action campaign "Girl Rising."

Prior to joining TDG, I worked with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions to develop docu-series for Netflix, HBO, Amazon, CNN, Nat Geo, Showtime, Viceland, AMC, Discovery, and History.

I have worked with various production companies, literary agencies, and film festivals in New York and Italy. I aim to tell compelling and diverse character-driven stories.
