San Francisco, CA, USA


Starting out as a photojournalist and documentary news producer, I transitioned to national public documentary television. For the last ten years, recovering from a major injury to my right arm, I shifted to creating short docs, video installations, and exhibiting in Northern California, Texas and Mexico, starting in 1988 with the award-winning Alphabet People, up through 2019, currently exhibiting photography and a series of coastal wood and shell sculptures at two local museums. I am fine-tuning a short documentary for exhibit at a local museum, have shot footage for a documentary on coastal public access for creating a funding trailer, and have gathered research/ writing to complete a script and directing the film. I am grateful to be part of this community, and feel committed to do all I can towards becoming a better filmmaker, storyteller and artist.
