"Move" is about world-renowned dance choreographers Kevin Iega Jeff and Gary Abbott and their inspiring Chicago based contemporary African American dance company "Deeply Rooted Dance Theater". Set to the contemplative music of Wynton Marsalis the film follows the group during a winter tour as we glimpse the intimate world of the dancers and the spiritual and emotional nature of the artistic process.

After being released from prison, Tommy, returns to his estranged family life in a post-industrial town and pursues his epiphany of being a stand up comedian. His two brothers, Patrick, an Iraq war vet and Ant, a thief of antiques, threaten to derail his dream while he tries to reunite with his first love Sarah, who now has a young child. Played entirely by real people Dipso is a raw portrait of multiple generations, struggles with alcoholism and the pursuit of love, done with humor, passion and charm.

In addition to producing film and video we also provide professional quality photography for clients needs.
RePoster is a project of collected, public manipulated images often reflecting the subconscious of the city. Part found object and part political statement the images reflect a strange hybrid of seriousness, humor and social dynamics.
Mixed Messages is a project about what the city speaks to us everyday through our hidden scrawls, our overlaying desires, our primal thoughts and feelings. Often overly direct, belligerent and vulgar, but other times, subtly rendered, simple, emotional or hilarious. These statements of desire, humor and human sensitivities are always around us.
There's nothing more punishing and validating in life than a Marathon. Every year the NYC Marathon runs by my apartment and I am amazed and inspired by the intensity of the humanity. The lumbering, staggering, jumping, laughing, crying, spiting, drinking, walking, wheel-chairing, costume wearing, just plan everything-ing, that passes by our stood and the incredibleness of it all. Every year I dream of running one, one day... Hasn't happened yet but hopefully these images make you dream too.
Since my early teens I've loved taking to the streets and just shooting away. It's both free spirited and frightening and gives me much life. Driven by instinct, composition and timing, street photography for me is one of the purest and simplest forms of human expression.
Environmental Portraits are a beautiful thing! For me it is a wonderful collaboration with a person in an arranged representation of themselves. Sometimes spontaneous and sometimes very formal depending on the individual. Whether in their homes, or in the street, or elsewhere, I try to capture the moment at hand with grace, emotion and respect.
During the voting of 2008 I took a trip from western Massachusetts to Harlem NY to document the outcome of this historic election. Believe me there was nothing more electric than being in Harlem for the announcement!
