I am a multimedia artist and community organizer. My art practice dances between filmmaking, writing, photography, animation and mixed media illustration. From documentary filmmaking to novel writing, my work focuses on societal issues, cultural memory and our current climate crises. I am an advocate for change, and I imbue my art and writing with strong social messages and calls for action.
My short films have been exhibited in a number of venues, such as the Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, the Western Massachusetts Biennial and the Blow Up Chicago Arthouse Film Festival, and The ROAR, among others. I collaborated with the multimedia artist Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo to create video art installations in the Godine Family Gallery in Boston, and in the K&P New York Gallery.
Through my work with Talking Wings Productions, I collaborated with the Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo on the "North Country Art , Land and Environment Summit" where community members from the St. Lawrence Watershed, Haudenosaunee Territory, came together to discuss sustainable and regenerative solutions for the climate crises.
Under the Talking Wings Productions umbrella, I am once again collaborating with Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo on "Burning or Breathing," a documentary series about "Earth Guardians."
I am also working on a series of speculative fiction/science fiction novels. The first novel is titled PANOPTIC SNOW. The novels grapple with themes of memory and structural violence, in light of contemporary political tensions and corporate prison systems. To accompany the novels, I have produced a series of illustrations. I one day hope to incorporate both into a narrative art series.
