Writing and directing for Nova…
Uncategorized / No Comments / August 5, 2020

Since April 2019, I’ve been writing, directing, and DPing with a team of collaborators on an upcoming episode for PBS Nova. Our episode “Can We Cool The Planet?” will air October 28, 2020. Writing and directing for Nova has been a fantastic journey, and it’s rewarding to fully and officially occupy this space (we DPs are so often de facto directors, minus the credit!) I’m developing a new project now, and very much looking ahead to the next page in this new chapter of my career. More details to come!
