My video storytelling is just an extension of my career as a still photographer. I am comfortable creating short docs for business and non-profit clients and individuals that would like me to give voice and movement to their story. Below is a sample of my work.

Shraaven Purnima is a river ritual practiced by Hindus. Our team went to one of the most iconic rivers in the United States, the Niagara River, to find a small group of Hindu men that practices this ceremony on the full moon day each August. They use a state park just up-stream from the falls. The contrast of the tranquility of this flat section of the river compared to the power of the river at the falls and tourism was an interesting one. This is part of a bigger project called Sacred Rivers, where we explore religious and spiritual rituals practiced in U.S. rivers. You can view the full project at http://www.sacred-rivers.com/

After 12 years working in a pottery studio in Iowa, Liz Spear packed her pickup, and headed off to find a new direction. She eventually landed in western North Carolina, where she studied fiber arts at Haywood Community College. "I had no idea I'd end up making clothes for a living," Liz says. She found help and inspiration through professional crafts organizations in the state, including Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc. Liz weaves enough fabric for about 100 garments a year, and her work incorporates fibers made by friends. She prefers to work in solitude, but the materials made by friends provides her with what she calls "a tactile sense of community." This video was made in conjunction with Piedmont Craftsmen's 50th anniversary. I collaborated on this project with my team, Michelle Johnson and Phoebe Zerwick.
