I have here production stills I did for a fellow creative (writer/director/good friend type), Miranda Lehman. The film is called Wrong, and is actually moving into post-production soon. I have to appreciate her taste for absolutely drinkable light design. I will update when more information comes out about the film.



More of my stills can be found here.

Wrong also has a Facebook fan page.


These are a few stills from the set of “Positive” a short film by writer/director/editor/good friend Liz Lewis. Stay tuned for future collaborations with this talented lady.




For the rest of the stills I shot for this production please check out the following flickr links:

Landscapes is a super 8 short portraying what Gil Dennis referred to as the “lovely lulls” of a relationship. It received a judges award at the Northwest Film & Video Festival (soon to be renamed the Northwest Filmmakers Festival), but more importantly was the first thing I made that complete strangers thanked me for. That was terrific. My husband, Michael, was a huge help in making this what it is.

Director Interviews

The Northwest Film Center hosts the Portland International Film Festival annually. During PIFF 34, I had the opportunity to interview some of the local, Oregon, filmmakers who had work screening at the Festival. Michael Roberson helped me with the camera work and contributed to the conversation. We interviewed Aaron Katz (COLD WEATHER), Matthew Lessner (THE WOODS) and Peter Richardson (HOW TO DIE IN OREGON):



Sexual Education: Book of Experience

If I remember correctly this book was completed in 2006. It is tactile, interactive, and approximately 6 inches high, 4 wide. An intimate little ditty.

A slight wink at William Blake and his Songs of Innocence/Experience as well as a bit of a poke at sexual education. More importantly, it is about honesty, perspective, humor and growth (but I should be able to say that about everything here).
