365 Days / 365 Videos

365 Days / 365 Videos: For one year, between September 2012 and September 2013, I filmed one moment every day to create a collection of 365 videos that represented 365 of my days.  I then spent the following year editing this footage into monthly montages - each shot is equivalent to one day and all sound is original to the situation in which it was filmed.  The result is a series of collages, gathering up small mundane moments of my life into "monthly meditations".  

“We somehow came to know this character, persona, that is you, concocted through flashes of light and sound. Yet these collage portraits/landscapes speak to something more universal. They are constellations of images, atmospheres, that force the viewer to look back at themselves and the little moments of their day it is so easy to look over.”

Travel

I have Couchsurfed all around Europe, gone snorkeling in the clear waters of Guadeloupe, backpacked across Morocco, circumnavigated the United States by train, and studied in both Mexico and England.  Traveling is a part of my life and sometimes it's hard to turn off the filmmaker side of myself, so the camera comes out and a short video is created from my adventures.


Activism

When George W Bush announced we were invading Iraq, the way I protested was by making a short documentary about how students across California felt about the war.  This instinct has never left me and with the election of Trump and rise of the alt-right, activism has become an integral part of my everyday life and work.
