From Burning Man to boardrooms, I'm comfortable documenting a wide range of stories and producing content across all mediums.

I started my career in late night comedy, then joined a union for feature film production. After witnessing too much disparity and sexism on film sets, I went back to grad school and pursued purpose-driven work. Since then I've worked with the Clinton Foundation and produced documentaries with Frontline. I also produced the TED conference and livestream events for several years.

As creative director for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, I was able to pour my energy into a cause that's very important to my family after my father was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Most recently, I was part of the digital operations team that won the presidential election with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris!

I'm also a freelance video director / producer and support birth clients. My work has been featured in New York Times, Esquire, Harper's Bazaar magazine, won Webbys, Emmy and Academy Awards, and more.

About

I'm Gwen, a NYC-based storyteller with over fifteen years of experience in Academy Award–winning feature films, critically hailed documentary television, and viral online video, including digital content which helped win the 2020 presidential race for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I've worked with TED Talks, Etsy, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Frontline / PBS, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and more.

I hold a bachelor's in TV / film, a master's in humanitarian affairs in cooperation with Columbia University, a graduate certificate in environmental and occupational health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In honor of my late father, I run marathons for Team Fox and raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. I also worked as the Foundation’s first Creative Director.
