My filmmaking is centered on a process of looking and listening. Being in a landscape for a period of time allows relationships of coexistence to emerge, providing new pathways of understanding. Through an interest in histories of place that recognize the relationship between humans and other species, my work explores the intersection of experimental and documentary filmmaking through research, conversation, and observation to read the landscape as archive.



I received my BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic and my MFA in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I live and work on the coast of Maine.
