As a filmmaker and artist, I'm interested in stories, people, and histories that are unseen. My most recent work considers the authors of public records, the purveyors of history, erasure, and gatekeepers to representation. More specifically, I'm interested in those who haven't been given a seat at the table and what this absence means for visibility and power.
