The Lost Kids
Hosted by journalist Josh Bloch (“Uncover: Escaping NXIVM”), THE LOST KIDS dives deep into the search for a missing teen, uncovering the dark and twisted business of tough-love programs for “troubled teens” and their ties to one of America’s most dangerous cults.
The Lost Kids is one of three podcast series that marked NBC Universal’s entrance into the podcast scene. As a producer on this series my job was to source archival material and assist the rest of the production team in developing the best way to execute the story. I reviewed each episode and gave feedback on the content, notes on how to enhance the narrative and insight on the history of the subject matter.
The Last Stop
The Last Stop is a feature documentary chronicling the rise and fall of one of America’s most notorious troubled teen treatment programs.
I wrote, directed and edited this film over three years starting in 2014. After its release in 2017 it went on to screen at film festivals both domestically throughout the U.S. and internationally in Australia. The film won Best Feature Documentary at Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema in New York and was ultimately picked up for distribution by Gravitas Ventures.
