Documentary Editing Reel 2020

Non-fiction footage editing sample


I created this short segment on The Stonewall Riots.

I used archival newspaper articles, photos as well as

super 8 mm film footage.


This audio was taken from an interview with Bill Salzman.

An Executive Committee Member of The Stonewall Veterans Association, and founding principal of the Harvey Milk

LGBT High School.


Experimental Film Reel 2020

Production & editing reel of my experimental films


The first excerpt is from my graduate thesis film

If Only For One Night. This film is based on a poem

I wrote & narrated, about the limbo of desire &

loneliness that occurs when a relationship ends.


The second excerpt is from Astral Body, which is

a film interpretation of an out of body experience.


Both films were created during my graduate studies, at

The New School while in their M.A. in Media Studies program.


The last excerpt is from Falling from the Tree A Single Leaf,

a short experimental film based on a poem I wrote & narrated.


Sound Design Reel 2020

This is a sample of my "audio poetry" and sound design projects


The poem is from my second collection of poetry,

Red Soul Into the Dark. I created an "audio poem"

along with a companion ambient track.


Listen to more in the Sound Design & Audio Poetry section.


Documentary Audio Poetry Sample 2020

Excerpt from Voices of Our Elders: An Audio Poetry Chapbook.


This project consists of "audio poems."


They were created from an Oral History interview,

with a gay 77 year old man about his life before Stonewall.


The use of silence has been used as punctuation.

Each poem illuminates life before the Gay Rights Movement.
