  • Gimme Shelter!

    • Reporter / Journalist
    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    The scale of homelessness in Seattle is seen in the city's downtown core, in neighborhoods, as well as parks and wasteland. The perception of homeless people remains plagued by addiction, mental health issues, and other negative tropes but many are homeless due to tough breaks in a hard economy, and they are standing up for themselves, taking control and speaking out.

  • Foodable TV - Hama Hama Oysters, Food As Lifestyle!

    • Documentary DP
    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    Starting with a 2am shoot on the tideflats where the oysters are harvested, this was one of my tougher non-conflict assignments. I snatched 40 winks on a sofa at the Hama Hama offices before starting the sunrise timelapse and a full days filming. Great fun and great people though!
