Renee 's profile

Having worked in film and video for more than 20 years and having created hundreds of short films, I am very excited to be producing my first, independent feature documentary, entitled "Turn a New Page," about incarcerated dads and a reading program which allows them to reunite with their families. This film correlates with my interest in social justice and my desire to provide a stage for underrepresented voices.

In the past, I've had the opportunity to travel to places like Guatemala, Kosovo, and Rwanda as the director of broadcast media for Catholic Relief Services. I also immersed herself into the world of emergency medicine as an associate producer for the Discovery Health series, “The Critical Hour.” Since 2005, I have worked as a senior associate director of Development Communications for Johns Hopkins University, producing award-winning films, while also shooting still photographs and contributing to the editorial team.

I graduated with honors and a double major of Communication Arts and English from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, and I earned my M.A. from Stanford University in documentary film, with my thesis film winning a 2003 Student Academy Award.

My still photography work has been published in a variety of print and web publications, and my independent film work has been screened at multiple film festivals including the Maryland Film Festival, Cinequest, the DC Independent Film Festival, and the United Nations Association Film Festival.
