Hi! I'm excited about talking about decolonizing filmmaking, visual sovereignty, Indigenous Intellectual property rights, and collaborative community filmmaking opportunities.

I'm the founding director of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Film Program, the only 4 year film degree in the state of Alaska. I also run UAF FRAME Film Productions, and primarily work with a wide variety of community partners to produce meaningful media. I've produced feature-length narrative, documentary, and educational films primarily with BIPOC directors.
