I have been using cameras my whole life. In my undergraduate years I began making fictional narrative pieces with original scripts that I wrote and co-authored. It wasn’t until I had a few years of folklore classes and video production classes before I was able to combine the two. The videos on this page are examples of work I have done through a practicum with Traditional Arts Indiana, an internship with TAUNY,  and as term projects.

Big Bad Wrassler, is my latest film that I made in 2018 with fellow folklorists, Delainey Bowers and Kate McElroy. It follows the experience and community that surrounds a small, independent wrestling ring in Frankfort, KY. 

This is a documentary film where I explore a recent phenomenon in which tens of thousands of crows decide to move into a small Indiana town for the winter. I talk to residents to find out why this is happening, and what can be done about it.  

The rest of my videos usually profile a master artist, or a space/event that has strong community ties.
