20+ years of documentary storytelling experience
from true crime to life-saving rats
to SELENA GOMEZ: MY MIND & ME

Maybe it's because I grew up in a house where we gave out walnuts on Halloween that I became a documentary storyteller. I'm fascinated by other people's lives, and have made a career interviewing, writing, producing, directing, photographing and editing personal stories and profiles.

I work with individuals, companies, and organizations to capture + craft personal and powerful stories, messages, missions, memoirs, and media campaigns.

Story-driven content I've created has helped sell TV series, pass legislation, raise awareness, launch businesses, preserve legacies, and energize audiences worldwide.

My storytelling work has been seen on network, cable + streaming TV, websites + apps, in publications including Variety + USA Today, at charity events + memorials, in retail stores, hair salons + homes, and on a 40-foot movie screen in an art deco theatre with the Secret Service in attendance.

in my elemenrt

From celebrities to civilians from all walks of life, I have profiled A-list + aspiring entertainers, athletes, politicians, authors, artists, chefs, CEOs, storm chasers, treasure hunters, war veterans, hostage negotiators, trauma survivors, grievers, doctors, social workers, experts, newlyweds, expecting families, The Amish – and I’ve directed Channing Tatum in tear-away pants.

Director, Producer, Showrunner

"Brandy is bursting with genuineness.

She is truly interested in other people and the world around her, which makes anyone in her presence instantly comfortable in their own skin.

It's a gift, and with it, she's able to draw out sensitive, powerful, warm, sometimes very funny, human stories.

I've seen it first hand, sometimes under intense pressure and often with people who are understandably wary of letting their guards down.

 

But in speaking to Brandy, you can tell they feel they're being heard -- and glad they've opened up."
