    • Documentary DP
    • Field Producer
    • Video Editor - Documentary

  • The Human Delta

    • Documentary DP
    • Video Editor - Documentary

    An audiovisual document about an interdisciplinary exploration of the social, political, historical, economic, ecological, and cultural intersections where the Mississippi meets the Gulf. Scales fold into one another as built environments infused with extractivism and racism, and rattled by climate disaster, meet with the intelligent yet fragile resilience of communities and ecologies. Enter the questionable questions of scholars out to make sense of any of it together. Made for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt at the Anthropocene River Campus in New Orleans.

  • Mississippi: An Anthropocene River

    • Documentary DP
    • Video Editor - Documentary

    A visual document about a project that explores ways of seeing a culturally iconic river. It flows through (contested) land, (gentrifying) cities, (broken) hearts, (difficult) stories, (resilient) communities, (research) questions, and right through the social and cultural contradictions of the United States. Made for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

  • How to Stop a Pipeline

    • Documentary DP

    An indigenous-led movement in Minnesota is laying it all down to block a tar sands pipeline from being built through Treaty Territory at the head of the Mississippi watershed.
