I have a deep interest in all that is artistic. Digital video is an outlet for me to creatively capture the essence of places, people, nature, and the stories within. I find many levels of meaning in pictures, sounds, signs and symbols -- the science of semiotics -- and filming and editing allow me to really immerse in the exploration of a "story" and then communicate it in a sequence that is my own creative treatment of reality.
Ultimately, my goal is to use the mass-communication tool of video as a means to leverage social and political change. Topics regarding education, our natural world, adventure education, oppression, and political issues are of immediate interest to me.
I joined Vimeo so that I can absorb the thoughtful words of other artists and video journalists. Joining Vimeo is a way for me to get feedback from true craftspeople in the field and be inspired by the artistic visions of others.
