I am a cinematographer based in New York. I was born in South Africa in 1990 and grew up in Cape Town where I studied Philosophy.  At the age of 15, I landed my first internship as a newspaper photographer and knew immediately that telling stories through images was how I wanted to spend my time. 

I moved to New York to attend the International Center of Photography and in 2018 my interests started shifting toward cinematography.

I co-directed and shot The Andrew Yang Show (2021) for The New Yorker Documentary and dp/directed my first short film, Give and Take (2021) with grants from Arri Inc and The National Geographic Society. These shorts premiered at DOCNYC and Rooftop Films respectively. I recently shot my first narrative short, Leche con Cereal (2022), which will premiere at festivals this fall.

I have worked on numerous projects as director of photography across narrative, commercial and documentary genres. I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with crew to tell stories I care about.

I live in Brooklyn, NY where I run my own production company with my husband.
