documentary producer and archival researcher


Steenbeck at the CBS Archive in NYC.

I have nearly a decade of experience seeing documentary films from development to delivery. I’ve worked with Ken Burns and Florentine Films since 2010, on multiple projects including The Central Park Five and Jackie Robinson. I’m currently producing a series with Ken Burns about Muhammad Ali (PBS 2021). More info at I’m a 2018 - 2019 Impact Partners Producing Fellow, and have a few independent projects in development.

I’ve contributed archival research to non-fiction media outlets such as WNYC’s Radiolab and Spike Lee’s Forty Acres and a Mule Productions. I’ve also worked with filmmakers as a consultant on archival workflow and research, and spoken on panels on the subject, at DOC NYC, ACSIL Expo, and Craft Ed. Seminars, among others.
