FEATURES & SHORT DOCUMENTARY
To Fail as a Witness was created in response to Mary Oliver's Little Summer Poem Touching the Subject of Faith (New and Selected Poems, Volume 2, pg. 130-131), a poem that recognizes the slow, incremental processes of the natural world--minute shifts in the environment humans often fail to see. In conversation with Anne Fosburg, I draw connections between observation, storytelling, and the urgent need for environmental action.
Inspired by correspondence with Anne Fosburg and Mitchell Johnson.

Night Rider revisits my childhood self in the slightly altered gravity of a lone car on a barren stretch of road. We hear what fills a child’s mind on what seems like a deep space journey as the night leaks in and the stars dissolve.
The People Who Feel documents tenderness, rebirth, and resilience on a farm in the hills of Lajas, Puerto Rico. Featuring Henry Córdova, a farmer raising goats and dairy cows.
Reverberations was produced as part of an audio/visual installation for historic Fort Adams in Newport, Rhode Island. The Fort Adams “listening tunnels” serve to remind us that we respond to this fear the only way we know how: by creating something equally unfathomable, dark, and deep with which to fight it.
