He has directed and produced music videos for musical sensations, Lila, and Hammer NoMore the Fingers. He has also created content for local start-ups and successful fundraising campaigns. While at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke, his film “Becoming Ironman”, about a triathlete who beat Leukemia, made him a finalist for the Lewis Hine Fellowship. His short film “Wendi’s Garden” took top prize at Nicholas School for the Environment’s “Green in 3″ video competition. Since 2007, Ned has worked with the award-winning Warner & Company, helping produce and edit videos for various educational institutions and non-profit organizations.

In his spare time, Ned can usually be found playing basketball, making it rain in one of the local parks.
