The old Canada Post mailboxes of Denman Island may be gone, but they’re not forgotten. Watch my most recent photofilm, ‘Seeing Green – A Denman Love Letter’, here.

Ahousaht: Story of a Skatepark

DSC_0036

My feature documentary ‘Ahousaht: Story of a Skatepark’ aired recently on CBC1’s Unreserved. This was an incredibly fulfilling piece to make – it’s my first piece for Canadian radio and the CBC, and a wonderfully positive and uplifting story to boot. I also received fantastically supportive mentoring from Iris Yudai, Executive Producer of Unreserved, via the brilliant Doc Project. Listen online here, or even better, subscribe to the Unreserved podcast for your weekly dose of Indigenous community, culture and conversation.

First work for CBC

october-mentees

I am beyond thrilled to be currently producing my first radio documentary for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation! The finished doc will air on CBC1’s Unreserved, the radio space for Indigenous community, culture and conversation. And that’s not all – I was also lucky enough to be selected for CBC’s Doc Project Mentorship Program, which pairs veteran producers with emerging talent, and airs the resulting documentary on the CBC1 show, The Doc Project. My mentor is the  editor of Unreserved, Iris Yudai, who has over 20 years experience at CBC, and who I am enjoying working with immensely. Read all about me and my fellow mentees and our forthcoming documentaries here.

New card + KCRW’s Radio Race

Hello and long time no see! Yes, it’s been a little quiet here for the last couple of years (!), mainly due to my moving to Canada in March 2015 and taking a little hiatus from journalism. However, I am over the moon to report that that hiatus is now more or less over – more details will be coming soon, but until then, here is my brand spanking new business card – available for commissions and collaborations, teaching and trades! And for your listening pleasure, here are my 2015 and 2016 entries into KCRW’s fabulous annual Race Race, a hugely fun 24-hour radio challenge.
