I grew up in New Jersey and live in Brooklyn since 2011. My father is a musician, my mother is an illustrator & painter and my brother is a painter & musician.

While earning a BA at Fordham University in the Bronx from 2007 to 2011, I worked as an audio engineer and videographer at pioneering public radio station WFUV FM. Also while at Fordham, I directed and produced a narrative short film Poolside (2012) starring singer Lana Del Rey.  

In 2011 I began a long-standing collaboration with Brooklyn-based indie cinema post house Nice Dissolve. With Nice Dissolve I media managed and did dailies for several feature productions, notably Spike Lee's Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2014) and Chi-raq (2015) as well as It Comes at Night (2017) produced by A24 and directed by Trey Edward Shults for whom I assistant edited. 

In 2014 I was lucky to play drums with accomplished underground NYC band The Shivers on their record "Forever is A Word".

In 2017 HuffPost called my debut solo music release "sultry & soulful."

From 2017 through 2021 I edited a feature film Frank Miller - American Genius (2021)a documentary profiling the comics creator and director known for Sin City300 and creating the Dark Knight Batman character and comic. The film premiered at Rome Film Fest in October 2021 alongside two A24 features and Marvel Eternals. During that same period and through 2024, I shot and cut several narrative and branded shorts.

In 2022 & 2023 I recut two of my films produced ten years prior; Poolside (2012 & 2022) and Pilot Mo (2024).
