|Independent Producer / Director
Since 1991 I have worked on documentaries and historical recreations for broadcast television. These films have ranged from three Emmy award winning historical series to a UN sponsored children's series for cable.
In 2004 I created thirty-four films for the 9-11 Commission on the events of September 11, 2001.
Since then, I have been engaged in producing films for corporate clients as well as non-profits, such as National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship, United Nations World Food Program and Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.
Producer / Director and second camera for the Showtime documentary series “What’s Going On”. These films were produced by RCN Entertainment in conjunction with the UN and focused on issues facing children today. The films were shot in Brazil (Child Labor) and India (Girls' Education) with UNICEF Goodwill ambassadors Susan Sarandon and Sonia Braga, respectively.
The “What’s Going On” series won the American Library Association’s 2005 award for “Most Notable Videos for Young Adults”.
The “Girls' Education” film was awarded a 2004 “Tribute Accolade” from Women in Cable and Television.
