Whole is the first short film I have directed, and it was created as a part of the 2021 Make More Everything Challenge in Fort Collins. The basis of the challenge was for a newly assembled team to create the short narrative film in one week. Whole went on to win the audience choice award of the challenge and be an official screening at the 2021 Horsetooth International Film Festival (HIFF).

Lasting Embers was also an official selection in the HIFF.
As part of a series of videos I edited and directed for Colorado State University's (CSU) Environmental Learning Center (ELC), this video takes a light-hearted and humorous approach to birding at the ELC.
