testing lighting with a collaborator

I am an award-winning journalist, filmmaker and documentarian based in Baltimore and New York.  Through the Lewis Hine Center for Documentary Studies fellowship I am developing a photography project - exhibition, oral history and book - that navigates family history, trauma, ephemeral sites of significance and resilience in collaboration with young people who have been in foster care. I am an associate producer with WNYC’s acclaimed Radio Rookies, and I edit, report and produce films and podcasts for places like KCRWs’ The Organist, Gimlet Creative, Dwell Magazine and others.

My video and audio work have been broadcast or shown on public radio programs, podcasts and publications including: All Things ConsideredHere & NowThe World, PRI's Living on EarthMarketplaceThe Paris ReviewWYPR in Baltimore, The Washington City PaperMeridian Hill Pictures, Undark and WAMU.

I make films and sound installations that have shown in museums, galleries and film festivals around the East coast including the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, Duke University, Power Plant Gallery, the Zimmerli Art Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Walters Art Museum and Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania. With a sense of place and historical research, my work examines the interconnectedness of land, power, labor and memory.

I have instructed and lectured at Skidmore College, Johns Hopkins University's Youth Film Arts programAppalshop's Summer Documentary Institute in Kentucky, Docs In Progress, Hidden Voices, Wide Angle Youth Media, Baltimore City Public Schools and Refugee Youth Project.

I'm available for freelance work producing, directing and editing films and podcasts as well as public radio content.
