Pig Face, AKA Lester, is the snot-nosed little brother no one wants following them. Particularly his sister Tracy and her BFF Ralph, when they find a big bag of misplaced moolah at the ball diamond. As they navigate their small town’s travails to try to sniff out clues to solve the mystery, they gradually discover that, snot or not, Pig Face just might be awful handy to have around.

Had a lot of fun capturing some of the brilliance of Toronto’s Veg Food Fest 2016 in this short piece.

Walking the Philosopher’s Way in McLaren Park
On March 29th I’ll report on a public art and trail project created by artists Susan Schwartzenberg and Peter Richards. The Philosopher’s Way was designed to transform one of San Francisco’s big, scary parks into a scenic, philosophical retreat. (Edited by Ninna Gaensler-Debs with sound design by James Rowlands.)
My public radio profile of the amazing Dr Josh Miele

Though I’m typically found in the Creative Dept, I’m getting another glimpse at life from the Marketing side of the room for the 59th annual San Francisco International Film Festival (April 21st to May 5th).
As their Marketing and Publications Intern, I don’t get the best desk chair, but I am getting front row seats to the internal process of putting up a major international film festival — as well as seats for new films, and filmmaker events like this post-screening Q&A with Eye in the Sky director Gavin Hood and SFFS’s Executive Director Noah Cowan. Exciting!
