I'm interested in people's stories and how the telling of a story affects the storyteller's life, the listener's life, and a community's perspective. Using ethnographic research through the lens of narrative, video production, and photography, I listen to and share stories as a way to understand the larger narratives of communities, movements, disasters, and trauma; enter into people's lives more humanely; preserve social and cultural history; and bridge conversations among diverse populations.
