In 2016 and 2017, I joined forces with director, Kate Novack, to tell the story of one of the most important figures in the world of fashion. Andre Leon Talley is a true inspiration and maverick as seen in his years at The Costume Institute, Interview Magazine and Vogue.
Last year, filmmaker Andrew Rossi and I followed Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, Vogue Director of Special Projects Sylvana Ward Durrett, and Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton as they planned 2015’s exhibition and gala “China: Through the Looking Glass.” The First Monday in May, also gives a behind-the-scenes look at the ultra-exclusive party of the year.

A documentary film that I shot with director, Erin Lee Carr, about the murder of Dee Dee Blancharde, for which her daughter, Gypsy Rose Blancharde, was accused.
A compelling documentary about New York’s ‘cannibal cop’ raises uncomfortable questions about how far fantasy can go before it is interpreted as conspiracy to murder.

A sheltered heiress who grew up cloistered in one of New York City’s most richly-historied mansions, kept, along with her sisters and beautiful young mother under lock and key by a well-meaning but domineering, old world tycoon father, Altina Schinasi Miranda (1907-1999), a pre-feminist visionary, broke wildly free of her constraints and forged a free-spirited, civically active, and creatively prolific life. I shot this documentary from 2009-2010 for director Peter Sanders.
Trailer for the landmark concert film that follows three acclaimed comedians on stage and off as they lift the veil to reveal the humorous truth of what it's really like to be Muslim in America.

A story of survival, the streets and the power of friendship. A gritty story of three friends from the 'hood, Rameck Hunt, Sampson Davis and George Jenkins, who made a pact in high school to find a way to go to college and then medical school. The three doctors not only accomplished this, but they are now spreading the word to inspire other inner-city kids to stay off the streets and take the educational route to a better life. I shot this documentary for Andrea Kalin of Spark Media back in 2005.
