TRAILER: ON WATER (IN TEXAS)

One of the world's largest underground water sources, the Ogallala Aquifer, is losing water at an alarming rate. The aquifer not only plays an important role in the social fabric of communities along its borders, but it also nourishes the food we eat in America. What choices are farming communities making given this inevitable change and how will it impact our food supply? 

I served as a field producer for this project.

MENHADEN: THE BAY'S MOST IMPORTANT FISH

The film Menhaden: Most Important Fish in the Bay is a 26-minute documentary that explores how a community is impacted by the disappearance of a fish from the Chesapeake Bay. The fish--Menhaden--has come to define the community's livelihood, heritage, and, once-upon-time, their future. What will happen now that this way of life isn't sustainable? 

This doc aired on Maryland Public TV and won three student Emmys for photography, editing, and outstanding documentary. It also won a 2012 CINE Golden Eagle Award

This is a 15-minute piece that I produced, shot, andedited. It is being used as an advocacy tool for organizations focused on foodsecurity issues.
