Event: World Refugee Day - Tucson 2015

I have been creating visual works for World Refugee Day ceremonies annually since 2013, when I first began working with and getting to know refugee communities and resettlement agencies in Arizona.

Every year in June, cities around the world celebrate World Refugee Day—some with naturalization ceremonies, others with memorials, performances, or community gatherings. Here's how Tucson, Arizona, got down in 2015 to honor the struggle and to celebrate the opportunity for a safe future.

"Crazy Climb"

Client: Adventure HQ
Package: set of promotional videos
Status: postproduction

I'm currently creating five promotional videos―each with slight variations in content, theme, and target audience―for Adventure HQ in Central Florida. They have an amazing facility and great staff, and I happen to be a frequent customer of their bouldering gym :-). This is a sneak peak of one of the videos.


Date: Autumn 2015

Enticing a love of nature through a visual medium and encouraging individual and group hiking in local, state, and national parks

Technical: All footage was shot on the fly with an old-model Samsung Galaxy S3 phone or GoPro Hero 4 Black and edited with care in autumn 2015.
