Hi! Welcome to this website on the internet!

My first name is Jed and my middle initial is “I.”  HOWEVER, my parents have never seen Star Wars and my Jedi-ness was a random accident. (That being said, my Midi-chlorian count is off the charts.)

I’m an Emmy-nominated filmmaker based in LA and I do all the video things –  directing, producing, shooting, editing, writing, and animating.

After graduating from NYU-Tisch in 2008, I made lots of music videos for artists like Talib Kweli, Raekwon, K’naan, Pharoahe Monch, and R.A. the Rugged Man. I also made videos for brands like Google, Armand de Brignac, Warner Music Group, and Funny or Die.

In 2016, I was the showrunner for Bloomberg’s Hello World, a ten episode global tech and travel doc series starring Ashlee Vance. Then I made a feature documentary called System Shock about the invention of the MP3 file format and its disruption of the music industry. (It will be released later this year!)

Currently, I’m in LA working for various outlets on all kinds of fun video projects! Hire me if you’d like!
