A package of videos I made for Acompli. The first is a more traditional ad, a "teaser" for the launch of the company itself. The second is a product video for the release of their flagship product.
Acompli was acquired by Microsoft in the fall of 2014 and rebranded as the new Outlook.

An animated product introduction for Box.
Without a doubt, ZenPayroll is one of the nicest companies I've ever made a video for.

A few of my favorites (right) from the 2012 & 2016 presidential campaign trails.
During the past few presidential elections, I have been on the campaign trail as a photojournalist. In 2008, I worked for the political blog FiveThirtyEight, which was later acquired by The New York Times (and more recently, ESPN). In 2012, I partnered with TalkingPointsMemo & Corbis Images as a freelance photojournalist. In 2016, I was back home with FiveThirtyEight.
