About Me

I started this blog in 2009 as an outlet for my passion in video editing. Since then, I’ve become a collector and user of more than a hundred film cameras, most of which are older than I am, and blogged about that. And about my experiences in many of the interesting places my work has taken me.

In 2020, at age 53, I finally made the leap to learn “proper” documentary filmmaking, and completed a master’s in journalism at the University of California. As of this update, my thesis film “The Search” is making its way through the film festival circuit and has won a number of awards.

I’m currently based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, where I oversee U.S. humanitarian assistance and third-country resettlement programs for nearly one million Rohingya refugees who live here. As I pay off my student loans, I’m contemplating ideas for my next film.

Never give up on your dreams.
