About Kerri

I am a freelance video journalist based in Chicago. I shoot, produce, and edit as a one-woman-band. My experience spans from shooting in-studio with multi-cam set-ups, to in the field as a video reporter. My work has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, and The Weather Channel, among many others. My passion for journalism and filmmaking has also led me to pursue original short documentaries in Brazil, Singapore, and Chicago. Complex, nuanced stories of people keep me alive and creative. I aspire to use multimedia storytelling to engage people, inspire change, and disrupt normalcy.

    Kerri was very attentive to the details of the project. We did not need to make too many revisions and she definitely carried our vision to fruition. We gave her free range to pick the subject of the piece and she picked a brilliant individual with amazing character on camera. I would definitely work with Kerri again on future projects.
