ABOUT ME

I’m a film & video producer and peacebuilding go-getter working to increase understanding across cultural barriers. I worked for years in the Middle East and Latin America helping communities battle violence and poverty, where I became fluent in Iraqi Arabic and Spanish. I led advocacy programs in Washington for the largest US network of international peacebuilding organizations. Now as a producer I create content for social impact to help people activate their talents for doing good. I studied social conflict and peacebuilding at Notre Dame University. I live in Los Angeles with my wife, Megan and son, Striver.
