A Little About Myself.
I have spent 20 years working in top newsrooms in New York and Tokyo, currently at The New York Times, where I edit some of the most renowned journalists and columnists in the world. I am an award-winning documentary filmmaker (producer, director, editor) now working on my second feature.
It's an unusual mix, I know, but I'm here to help you develop and produce nonfiction video, and/or with writing and editing of any kind. I do web production as well.
One recent client was John Hechinger, whose new book "True Gentlemen: The Broken Pledge of America's Fraternities" I proofread. He sent me a note after thanking me for my "tremendous care and expertise ... great catches and valuable suggestions."
A recurring client is Columbia University's Earth Institute, for whom I have on four occasions shot and produced video showcases of students' research projects around the world.
Past freelance video work includes the editing, scripting and production of a two-part series for AfSIS, a project backed by the Gates Foundation to revolutionize agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa. On the print side, I copy edited "Deep Decarbonization Pathway Project" reports for several countries, "perhaps the most serious effort to draw up a detailed road map for the energy transition," said The New York Times.
