COMMUNITY STORYTELLING 

I'm passionate about connecting professional media makers with communities marginalized from mainstream media to experiment in community storytelling & invest narratives that move the audience without simplifying the truth.  Together we have produced multiple short films, photo series, and written works that have garnered hundreds of thousands views and shares, incredible press coverage, and thought-provoking conversations.


On Display is a creative spacemaking initiative that increases visibility of Kiki Ball participants beyond the Ball, to whatever safe space the participant has chosen


72 hours after George Zimmerman was found not guilty Emeka Ekwelum was teaching at DDC, a summer youth program at Columbia University, and told me how humbled he’d been by the thoughtfulness of his students, as they had conversations about the verdict. We shot this the next day. Directed by Damani Baker // Featuring Daniel Wolfe, John Nicolas and Nick Rodriguez.


Sometimes all it takes to make something inclusive is an invitation, so we set out to create the biggest invitation to the biggest climate march ever! How? A coordinated social media blitz - a challenge asking friends to #marchwithme and to invite their friends ...etc! 


By the age of 13, 53% of girls say they are unhappy with their bodies. When were they happy? We sent photographer Marie C. to find out! She photographed girls between the ages of four and eight and asked them what they liked about their bodies. They share wisdom the rest of us have forgotten.
