I was born in Portland, OR when I was zero years old. Since then I've lived in New York, Washington DC, Melbourne, Seattle, Amsterdam and Pittsburgh, PA (that's where I am now).
I love interviewing people and I've been doing it professionally for over a dozens years on television and online video. During that time I've interviewed lots of people you've probably heard of like George Clooney, Judi Dench, Samuel L. Jackson, Natalie Portman, Grover from Sesame Street and somehow I was also the first TV journalist to interview the cast of The Office.
My last documentary/musical, Meet the Beetle, played at film festivals across the country and on select public television stations. In 2018, I produced an 8-part animated web series for Topic based on the bestselling book, Sad Animal Facts. I've currently got another short film, Alma 2020 in post-production.
Sometimes I'm also an advertising copywriter and I've worked and freelanced at Wieden+Kennedy, The Great Society, Swift/Possible and Sockeye. I've worked with big brands (Instagram, Nestle, Adidas, Hilton, Twitter), little ones (The Beaufort Kazoo Museum) and a few others in between.
Also, did I mention I'm a Guinness World Record Holder for high-fiving?
