I wrote a lengthy post on social media outlining the separate but intertwined history of Unarmed with my film 72 Hours, please read it. In brief, I’ll say that having the top cultural institution in Brooklyn stage an outdoor screening of my film – a screening where I’ll also present the art project I’ve been […]
I posted the first Unarmed jersey to social media in August 2013 after Trayvon Martin’s killer went unpunished. That’s seven years of this shit. 14 jerseys, so far. We’ll be moving into production soon. For updates on the project visit unarmed.co.

This film documents the installation of Into the Woods, which was created for the International Garden Festival at Domaine Chaumont-sur-Loire. In making the film I asked design principals Matt Donham and Phoebe Lickwar to voice their creative choices in building it, and some of the larger ideas at play in the field of landscape architecture. […]
The Milwaukee Film Festival had me back for a screening of my documentary Legacy Lives On and a panel on the topic of entrepreneurship. Both were successes. Seeing a new place robed in Fall’s majesty, however, was just as exciting.
This semester I have joined the faculty of Columbia University to co-teach a class called The Climate Crisis – Imagining a Green New Deal in the Hudson Valley. What would urban design look like across the Hudson Valley if House Resolution 109 was law? Friends get a kick out of the fact that I’m teaching film… […]
