"Telling stories has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I got into radio and television in high school at Fort Hayes Career Center—not because I wanted to get into that industry necessarily, but because I wanted to learn how to use sound and video to tell stories and I wanted access to that technology. That was the beginning of my filmmaking journey, which led me to study film at Wright State University and eventually to my position as editor in the Film/Video Studio at the Wexner Center for the Arts. Myth of Father was my first feature documentary in 2003, a personal story about the changing dynamics within my family after my father came out as transgendered. It took nearly nine years to complete Cincinnati Goddamn, a 2015 documentary about police brutality I edited and co-directed with April Martin—our dedication to the subject matter helped us persevere through the completion of that film. As a filmmaker and video editor at the Wex, I get a lot of personal satisfaction from working out storytelling problems and technical challenges, and seeing peoples’ visions through. The diversity of projects I encounter through the Film/Video Studio means I work on everything from experimental shorts to feature documentaries, to multi-channel gallery installations. One of the most gratifying experiences I’ve had as an editor happened this past year, when I edited five films with women who were incarcerated at the Dayton Correctional Institution through a program called Pens to Pictures. The program started with intensive screenwriting and directing classes aimed at empowering incarcerated women to tell their stories and resulted in five powerful films that bring awareness to issues they’ve had to deal with, be it addiction, loss or abuse."
