The Citadelle Laferrière

This short film was quite a journey with lots of moving parts and players. I’m grateful to have collaborated and worked on this unique project. 

Narrated by renowned actor, and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, Forest Whitaker…

LaLa’s World

This short film was created for WOMANITY PROJECT, a nonprofit multimedia platform producing media content and workshops to shed a light on cultural and gender stereotypes.

It features LaLa Zannell, a lead organizer in the trans community. Lala’s journey is a unique story of challenges, love and support that differs from the victim’s narrative that we often hear in the media.

Silhouette Sessions

musical showcase

Live music. A great crowd. I played many roles during this frequent Monday musical showcase produced by RONIN, hosted by Carousel (formally Moondog NYC). I created the opening credits. A little producing and creative direction, sometimes editing, throw in some gaffing. Those are even my drums in the Hinds performance. Here are 3 selects vids of many awesome musical Monday nights.
