I'm a documentary filmmaker and an adjunct professor of media arts at the University of North Texas where I also graduated with a master of fine arts degree in documentary filmmaking and studies. I am also a sound supervisor and associate producer for Datalus Pictures in Denton, Texas.
Unique traits: I have a lot of experience documenting social justice movements, especially direct action and civil disobedience. I like to consider myself an independent videographer of activism.
