Big Vape: The Rise and Fall of Juul

A documentary limited-series that I had the pleasure to story produce for Netflix. Of all the docuseries that I’ve worked on in my career this one might be the most personal. I started smoking in college and picked up and put down the cancer sticks up until my mid-30s when I bought my first vape. I’m proud to say that I no longer smoke and I credit vaping entirely for that. While I never used a Juul (they got big after I had already quit) I did follow their rise and fall closely. The vaping conversation is extremely complex and there truly is no perfect solution to nicotine addiction. However I think #bigvape does a really good job of investigating all sides of one major plot in the vaping storyline that is still being written.
