Me and some friends at Upendo Childrens Village in Mzuzu, Malawi. February 2018.
I am a highly-experienced videographer, video editor, photographer and television journalist who has written, directed, shot and produced hundreds of short promotional, informational and entertainment videos for Fortune 500 companies, business startups and Christian nonprofit organizations. Highlights include producing television documentaries that have aired on PBS and other prominent international networks.
Since beginning my career as a foreign correspondent in China, I have never lost my love of discovering new places and people, especially exotic people in the world’s most remote places. I spent a summer traveling 4,200 miles off-road through Mongolia, living in a tent with nomadic families filming a documentary for Swiss television. On other trips I met the Dalai Lama in the Himalayas, and covered Islamic terrorism in the jungles of the Philippines.
These days my passion is to reach people with the life-saving gospel of Jesus Christ. Having the opportunity to use my gifts and talents to further the kingdom of God has been a dream come true for me. A portfolio of my recent work can be found below.

YOUTH FOR CHRIST – 2018-TODAY
I shoot and edit promotional videos for this Rochester, NY nonprofit organization that is on a mission to help youth discover their identity and purpose in Christ. YFC Rochester ministers primarily to the African American community which has been devastated by the twin pandemics of Covid and gang violence. I interview teen participants, parents and program directors to document the impact of YFC on the community. yfcrochester.org

This 1-minute promotional video captures the devastation of the suicide epidemic and gives a clear call to action to what we can all do to save lives.
This interview with the mother and sister of a shooting victim captures the pain of their loss while also giving hope to others who are going through a similar experience.
