Screenings and Interviews

Screenings and Interviews

I recently was on XRAY FM's Group Therapy show hosted by André Middleton alongside Luann Algoso to talk about our upcoming web series entitled Nonprofit. 

And then the next day, I appeared alongside Lorien Barlow, a director from New York who has been working on a tradeswoman documentary film. In front of hundreds of peopele, we got to talk about the issues tradeswomen face on the job. It was really powerful and just an honor to be there. Here's a link to photos of the event.

Busy Summer

Summer comes to a close and I've wrapped up videos with Clackamas Women's Services, Portland'5 Education Project and the Northwest Forest Workers Center. This has been in addition to narrative projects including production of We Have Our Ways, the short film funded by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Nemesis, an awardee of the POST-TRUTH project with Lower Boom and Open Signal as well as Nonprofit, a crowd-funded web series pilot. Please check out all of these projects and more which are in post production and screening later this year and next!
