Plant Matters is a 35 second artist film. Still images were created with outdated, undeveloped 35mm color film, desert wildflower petals, and the phytogram filmmaking method, then digitally arranged and set to motion.

The Shape of Froglessness is a silent micro-film shot on location in the Pacific Northwest.

In a world that is falling apart, a meaningful lump of silence floats enclosed in restricted space, an absence of sound from a transient place between this world and the world after death.

At Death We Forage is an experimental film documenting the unraveling of life on planet earth during the global pandemic known as COVID-19. Filmed on location in San Francisco, California, during the summer of 2020, it is an emotional journey expressed through artistically rendered moving images.

Waking is a moving poem about interconnection. Love is the way we find comfort in a world that is falling apart. Through love, we deeply connect with others and with the natural world. The shift from a narrative of domination and accumulation to a narrative of respect occurs through a worldview that honors love above all else.
