I'm trying to live my life as a thoughtful, considered, and sometimes clever, human.

I use my camera to document how I and others move through life, reflecting on the way changes in technology allow us to change how we interact and make use of our environment. I want to see what it looks like to be alive in the 21st century, this recently digital era, in public, and in private.

In my documentary work I'm especially interested in acts of political resistance, as well as drug use and drug policy, and, finally, the role digital networks as embodied in the everyday electronics permeating our, such as phones, screens, chips, play in mediating/creating/cannibalizing public space.

One life to live, as the soap opera reminds us. One Earth too, as the physicists keep pointing out. Living this way I feel I'm not squandering the former, and hoping to encourage others to not squander the latter.

If you think you'd like to work with me on a project, go to my contact page and say hello.
