Despite being a commie, commercials make up a good portion of my body of work. I prioritize commercial work for non-profits, ethically-operating businesses, and small locally-owned businesses, and pretty much don’t do anything else. If Nike ever hits me up… well I don’t see that happening, so in the meantime, here’s some of those types of pieces I’ve done.
This is a docu-commercial piece I directed and DP-ed for a local bike shop run by a punk in Allston named JT. This piece was very special to me, as it was so collaborative and based more in storytelling, ethics, and ethos rather than capitalist advertising. This is a piece driven by love for local businesses run by members of my community, and I think the results are very personal, which was my goal. I wanted to make the piece feel like an environmental portrait as much as possible, and I think we succeeded in accomplishing that.

The Cambridge Women’s Center is the longest-running community space for women in America. This piece was filmed all in the span of three hours on a Sunday morning in April of 2019. All interviews were filmed in the same room with one camera. Very proud of how this piece turned out despite the tight space and timeframe.

A chat about food pantries, the importance of young people’s inclusion in a church community, and the prophetic resistance project, an organization that works to fight for the immigration rights of citizens and refugees.
