Women's Climbing Festival
Five women, all connected by a love of climbing, share deep insights about their relationship to the sport during the popular all-female climbing festival, Flash Foxy. Audio and footage were recorded between bouldering sessions in Stone Fort Chattanooga throughout the 3-day festival.
Sugar of the Earth
Debbie and Fred have chosen a humble lifestyle. They breathe intention into everything that they do, not only for themselves but also for generations to come. This video was created entirely in 5 days for the Kentucky Mountain Workshop in the foothills of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Envelope Adventures (my first video)
We all start somewhere. I started in my freshman year college dorm room, meticulously moving little pieces of doodled paper to create a stop motion film with my very first point and shoot camera. I remember being so proud.
My camera has been everywhere from dangling off my harness, a hundred feet up in the Red River Gorge, to the middle of the savannah somewhere east of Lubumbashi, Congo next to a hand-drawn map. I pursue projects that explore narratives not often recognized in mainstream media and I strive to use storytelling as a tool for social / environmental activism.
I began my career at a social innovation nonprofit where I learned community organizing, empathic interviewing, and the human-centered design process. Combining this knowledge with my love of filmmaking in 2016, I grew a deeper social and emotional awareness of visual media and began collaborating on films that celebrated underrepresented stories. I'm currently working as a Video Editor with The North Face.
