I am an independent filmmaker working in Los Angeles, making documentary, nonfiction and experimental films that study American history, spirituality, and our environment. I tend to use analog film, field recordings, dance-based expression, and intense, unconventional sound design. I am interested in the physiological and emotional effects of sound, both as an aspect of the environment and as part of sonic composition. I recently developed two courses for CalArts based on this research. My most recent film, Watermarks, studies how confederate monuments conceal invisible histories in the Virginia landscapes; it premiered at Slamdance 2019.
