Sexual harassment has been a growing problem in Egypt over the last few years, especially in Cairo. UN Women reported that over 99% of Egyptian women have suffered from sexual harassment in their lifetime. Due to the extensive media coverage on the issue, the Egyptian government introduced anti-sexual harassment legislation, making it possible for harassers to face years in prison.
I co-directed The People’s Girls, a an award-winning documentary film on sexual harassment, which takes a closer look at Egypt to see who is to blame and how women are fighting back. Because patriarchal societies often overlook women’s rights violations, this documentary serves as a catalyst for public debate not only in Egypt but internationally, as prominent cases of sexual harassment frequently occur on a global scale.
I have worked with 15+ companies to authentically show their work culture and market their products.
In this example, I shot and edited a 75th Anniversary Video for Wiegel Tool Works, a manufacturing company in Illinois. Interviewing over 10 people, I was able to weave the incredible story together of the company's past, present, and future.
I shot and edited this documentary-style video about Family Focus, an organization supporting youth and families in the Chicagoland region. This was shown at their anniversary gala, in front of over 500 people.
I shot and edited multiple crowdfunding videos for a variety of companies.
This video was for Chicago Comb Co., who led a successful Kickstarter campaign with this video.
I have filmed multiple corporate and cultural events. This is from a presentation I documented at Mezcla Media Collective’s launch event.
I shot and edited for Skill Scout, a new startup that is transforming HR through job videos and hands-on applications. I created over 15 videos for their clients, from the interview to final edits.
I edited short-form videos featuring water projects from Rotary Clubs globally for the 2014 Rotary International Convention.
