Sara is an LA based director and short form docu-editorial storyteller, shooting and editing much of her own work.

She is best known for her OSCAR & EMMY Nominated, and IDA Winning documentary, “Poster Girl.” Her film, “Women Who Score,” recently received a Hollywood Music in Media (HMMA) nomination for Best Music Documentary, and more recently, Sara co-directed and edited “Two Beats One Soul,” a feature documentary about a genre-bending musical collaboration between American artists and the next generation of Cuban musicians.

Early in her career, Sara received mentorship from her father as a run-and-gun camera operator with an eye for story. Together, they travelled to over 15 countries, making films about important social and environmental issues. On one particular adventure in Siberia, a boating accident left her stranded and momentarily considering a dull life selling insurance.

Sara stays mostly on the ground with yoga, cooking, and boogying to live music. She serves on the board of Warrior Writers.
