About me

I'm Gwen, a NYC-based storyteller with fifteen years of experience in making Academy Award–winning feature films, critically hailed documentary television, and viral online video. After working as Post Production Manager for TED and Associate Producer for Frontline films, I founded CAPTURED to tell stories near and dear to my heart, and to work at a pace that's best for my new family. I’m a mother and know just how quickly these days fly by, so I'm driven to help others capture these fleeting moments.

With a bachelor's in TV, Film, and a master's in Humanitarian Action, I recently completed a graduate certificate in environmental and occupational health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in research for my documentary film, City of Enchantment. In honor of my father, I'm also a marathon runner for Team Fox and the Michael J. Fox Foundation. I also worked as the Foundation’s first Creative Director.

How I work with parents

I help support new parents by documenting the special moments of birth, postpartum and the passing years.
