The following are projects that I both wrote and directed.

“My goal with this video was to shine a light on the clandestine battles women are forced to engage in, specifically in public spaces. While many of our public spaces are designed to facilitate and improve our lives, too often they allow for a double standard in which all woman must negotiate uncomfortable, unfair, hostile, or dangerous situations, while men either as perpetrators or as bystanders get the choice to opt-in or opt-out.
I asked some of the women in my life to share real stories from their lives and I took those accounts and translated them into vignettes, each one designed to highlight something specific about this inequity. My hope is that all men, myself included (at :43 seconds) will learn to challenge each other to be better."

The Pickathon Pumphouse & Edge Stage 2018
The Pickathon Pumphouse & Edge Stage sessions are a curated film/recording session that operates in the backstage area of the festival. For four days during the festival many bands come to the Pumphouse to track a song in a controlled environment directed by me and produced by Ashley Mellinger and Sarge Sargis. You can follow the links to see the entire 2018 season (22 sessions) via Pickathon’s youtube page.
