LSL Life Docuseries — “Maggie”

I’m delighted to share this documentary short film, “Maggie”, that I produced and directed. Maggie’s family was so warm and inviting. They were excited to share with us about their lives, their family, and their little social butterfly who never stops talking, despite being born with profound deafness! “Maggie” is part of a series of…

Short Film — “Carrol Lynn”

Can you even believe these production stills from the short film, “Carrol Lynn” on which I served as producer / line producer?! Writer/Director James Cernero and DP Steven Carmona (yes, the same one who’s worked with me on the LSL Life Docuseries), together created some beautiful, powerful images. The performances from Annie Golden, Danielle Burgess, Nikiya Mathis, Anna…

LSL Life Docuseries — “Zach”

I’m so proud to share this documentary short film, “Zach”, that I produced and directed. Zach and his family welcomed us into their home and their lives to share their story of perseverance in the midst of the incredible challenge of profound hearing loss. They gained confidence through the technology and therapy provided through Listening…

LSL Life Docuseries — “Dacie & Carlie”

I’m so proud to share this documentary short film, “Dacie & Carlie” that I produced and directed. I was privileged to spend a lovely day on their family farm with them and learn what incredible girls they are and to hear from their parents the amazing story of answered prayer and hope they’ve received through choosing…

The Cohort of Star Experts

In the Fall of 2018, I wrote another short one-act Christmas play, this time about the “wise men” who visited the baby, no- the toddler, Jesus, about 18-24 months after he was born. I called it “The Cohort of Star Experts”. I wrote it with the goal of it being able to be used with…

From the Muse, to her Beloved

Here is a poem, written and performed by the ineffable Emily Capshaw, and a video, directed by the same. I collaborated as cinematographer on the dance portion. For anyone who’s ever tried to be creative but has felt like inspiration has run out…

Me Too

I hesitated to write this post because I’ve “only” experienced sexual harassment and not sexual assault. I felt guilty. Like I would be taking attention away from the more important problem of sexual assault. But I’ve realized that while assault is farther across the line, harassment is definitely on the same side of the line…

“You’ve Got Skills”

I’ve just watched Season 1: Ep. 11 of Luke Cage and I need to talk about this scene between these two awesome powerful women. After handcuffing Shades to the pipe, Claire collapses onto the barrel. Misty turns. Misty Knight: You’ve got skills. Claire Temple: You too. Misty Knight: My father. Claire Temple: My uncle. They laugh together….

Back to Air Squats!

This might be small to some, but it’s huge to me. I can do air squats again. I used to be able to back squat 135 lbs. The very first day I started Crossfit, I did 88 air squats in a row, after 45 minutes of other stuff. But in the worst of my recent…

4.5 Weeks Postpartum Confession

I just got out of a shower at 3:30 am where I had a good cry. I am 4.5 weeks postpartum with my son and I can’t sleep. Why was I crying? Lots of reasons. I was crying because I am still carrying baby weight. I was crying because I can’t get back to sleep….
