When I am taking steps across a sidewalk or putting my key into my door at night, I see myself as an old woman on her deathbed. My eyes are blinking their last few blinks, and my future self is looking back at me as I am today; lucky to walk on solid ground, lucky with a place to sleep. "I was so fortunate all that time," my future self thinks, "All those moments I lived in time; just to move was something." Even though I know I'm lucky right now, I can only savor it if I remember that it’s temporary. To the extent that I am a creative person in the world, it is in order to investigate what makes myself and others feel grateful or hyper-alive, while simultaneously avoiding a hierarchy of states of being. "How lucky I was to be bitter and spiteful," I'll think. "Just as lucky as I was to be in love."
These days, I work in film, radio, and performance.
I write screenplays and work as a story consultant. I also make podcasts - both as a writer/producer and as an editor. I hold microphones in my hands and cut sounds with my fingers. I convince loved ones to appear with me in front of audiences in various stages of undress.
I am passionate about good stories - encountering them and telling them. I love working with people who say yes to every wild idea.
Here are some projects I've worked on:
