Hi, my name is Jed. I’m a filmmaker based in NYC. I work full time for Bloomberg as a video producer, making documentary content for their digital properties (and occasionally for BloombergTV).

Most recently I produced the tech and travel show, Hello World, a collaboration between BloombergTV and Bloomberg Businessweek. We went to New Zealand, Sweden, Israel, Iceland, the Mojave desert, Australia, England, Japan, Russian, and Chile. Check it out. It’s good stuff.

I’m currently in production on #systemshockdoc, an hour-long documentary about how the mp3 accidentally disrupted the music industry, pushing it to evolve into a streaming and free-release economic system. One day you should check this out too!
