CASTING SHADOWS (2016)
CASTING SHADOWS is a multi-sensory video installation of comics that explore disability culture and the human experience. Projections of hand drawn comics and original soundscapes envelop the viewer in a wash of story. CASTING SHADOWS is a cultural conversation that considers themes of animal-human interdependence, aging and connection, family, the role of assistive technology, and home.
This project is on exhibit September 9 – October 28, 2016 at the Jack Straw New Media Gallery in Seattle (read Stranger review here). The opening night event is September 9 at 7PM, the Artist Talk is September 30 at 7PM, and the closing night event is October 28 at 7PM (Co-sponsored by Short Run Comix & Arts Festival). CASTING SHADOWS has received support from Art Matters the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the Jack Straw Foundation and the University of Washington Harlan Hahn Award.

THIRD ANTENNA: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE RADICAL NATURE OF DRAG (2001)
In 2001 with Drag Attack Productions I Co-directed and produced a feature length movie “Third Antenna: A documentary about the radical nature of drag”. Third Antenna features interviews and performance footage by drag queens, drag kings and gender performers of all varieties across the United States and parts of Canada. We particularly focused on documenting the perspectives of performers on the ‘fringe’ of drag culture. The soundtrack for Third Antenna features music by 1774 and Tracy + The Plastics.
