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.

It's been a busy few months though you can hardly tell from my blog. I've been behind on updating here.
I've been working on videos with the Portland Water Consortium, Portland'5, APANO and then also working on narrative projects. I shot the short film Working Lunch:
Shooting with my GH5 on the RoninM gimbal for a short film directed by Shilpa Sunthankar. I'm in there somewhere.
On set of Working Lunch with producer Tara Johnson Medinger and Shilpa Sunthankar.
During my job shadow with director Debra Granik while she was in town filming her next feature film. Her previous narrative film, nominated for multiple Oscars, was entitled Winter's Bone and starred Jennifer Lawrence. I got to follow her around on set, learning her ways and yes, it was amazing!
I've signed on to direct the new web series by creator Luann Algoso about a nonprofit workers in the whitest city in America. The series is called "Nonprofit." Above, Amy Nieto-Cruz, producer, me and Luann Algoso. Luann will also star in the project.
Q and A with Briar Levit, director of Graphic Means, a documentary short that I shot. Briar and I travelled all over to make her film about the world of design before computers. It was a sold out audience at the Hollywood Theater and currently, the film is screening around the world!
Above photo by Kjerstin Johnson. Kjerstin and I received a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council to make a film. We had a table read recently and are in the process of building our team. I'll direct. Kjerstin wrote the script. Christian Henry will produce and Sidony O'neal will star! Stay tuned!
