Director  |  Producer  |  Interviewer

As an accomplished creative, I possess versatile expertise spanning documentary, editorial, branded, animated, and educational content. I excel in forging meaningful connections on diverse sets and my leadership style combines a clear vision with an open spirit of collaborative curiosity.

I've been fortunate to work with a spectrum of talents— from a seasoned Hollywood showrunner to untrained dogs, Zen priest, reformed murder convict, astronauts, athletes, and notable academics. I regularly collaborate with experts at the forefront of their fields ranging from neuroscience to physics to mental health to longevity science, as well as with luminaries in the realm of psychedelics research.

My body of work is distinguished by its commitment to excellence. Central to everything I create is a deep-rooted sense of heart and a commitment to beauty—both inner and visual, shaped by my background as a professional photographer. My focus is on crafting emotionally resonant stories that foster personal growth and forge meaningful connections.

Recent research has shown that psychedelic drugs like LSD and psilocybin seem to be an effective method for treating conditions like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. And unlike common antidepressants, some people report long-lasting improvements in their mental health. What makes these substances so unique and powerful? That’s one of the driving questions behind the research of Matthew Johnson, who has studied the nature of addiction, psychedelics, and other psychoactive substances during his work at the Center for Psychedelic & Consciousness Research at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, and is one of the most widely recognized scientists in the world today. The renowned theoretical physicist walks through the evolutionary journey of quantum computing, from analog to digital to the quantum era. Quantum computers hold immense promise because of their ability to tap into parallel universes, which boosts their computational power exponentially. They could revolutionize everything and the race between major tech companies and intelligence agencies to actualize this power is intense. The endeavor isn’t without challenges; we’ve yet to create a fully functional quantum computer. But Kaku envisions a future where quantum computers unravel complex equations, potentially shedding light on profound cosmic mysteries.

RON GARAN, Astronaut & Humanitarian |  Topic: Shifting perspective  |  Big Think  +

Director |  Producer  |  Interviewer  |  development through launch

This public video kicks off a class for BT+ corporate learning audiences.

A curious phenomenon often occurs when astronauts travel to space and look out on our planet for the first time: They see how interconnected and fragile life on Earth is, and they feel a sudden responsibility to protect it. Astronaut Ron Garan experienced this so-called “overview effect” when he first saw Earth from space. When he looked out on the planet, he saw an iridescent biosphere teeming with life, all protected by a remarkably thin atmosphere. What he did not see was the thing that society often gives top priority: the economy. For Garan, seeing Earth from space revealed problems like global warming, deforestation, and biodiversity loss are not disconnected. They are the symptoms of an underlying flaw in how we perceive ourselves as humans: We fail to realize that we are a planetary species.

DEBBIE MILLMAN, Brand Designer & Podcast Host |  Topic: Branding  |  Big Think +

Director |  Producer  |  Interviewer  |  development through launch

This public video kicks off a class I developed for BT+ corporate learning audiences.

Named “one of the most creative people in business” by Fast Company, and “one of the most influential designers working today” by Graphic Design USA, Debbie Millman is also an author, educator, curator and host of the podcast Design Matters, one of the first and longest running podcasts. Design and branding are inherently a part of human nature. They serve as a way of signaling to others, non-verbally, who we are, what we believe in, and what is important to us. There was a time when consumers were exclusively interested in a company's products — upgrades, different flavors, different colors. But today, Debbie Millman explains that consumers want to know if the companies that they are buying from are worthy of their money.
