WORKS IN PROGRESS

Sidewalk Ghosts
Born from over ten years of interviewing, photographing and filming 1000s of unique strangers, “Sidewalk Ghosts” is an ongoing documentary, storytelling and advocacy project bringing to surface the value of a human life. An integrated, multi-channel outreach of published works, speaking engagements and podcasts that move forward a most uplifting and actionable consideration. Real-life stories, observations and openhearted dialogues that entertain as they share ideas for appreciating the worth of others, a greater love for yourself, and the knowledge of just how far your individual influence does reach.

Freedom of Faith
We all have belief systems and inner motivations forming who we are. “Freedom of Faith” is a documentary film featuring the perspectives of some of the nation’s most highly esteemed religious leaders, educators, influencers, and real people just like you and I. It’s mission is to foster open and productive dialogue between people of diverse beliefs via proposing a compelling question: Perhaps it is through the recognition of others individual outlooks regarding faith and the higher power in which they are grounded, that we may better align with one another, and in the process, perhaps even better know ourselves?

Dreams
Sigmund Freud captivated crowds with his theory that dreams are manifestations of suppressed desires. A more popular consensus is that dreams do have a purpose, and this purpose is largely connected to our emotions. Or perhaps, Dreams simply serve as sort of a data dump—a clearing of the day’s useless memories and a caching of the valuable ones. Whatever they are, we do not truly know, but the mystery of dreams inspired me to document them.
