Photographer. A long-term personal project where – from its inception leading up to the one-year anniversary on September 17, 2012 - I embedded myself within the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Eyes of Thailand Lao PDR  | 2010
Stills appeared in the feature length documentary film The Eyes of Thailand - an 8 time award winning true story of one woman’s quest to help two elephant landmine survivors - Motala and Baby Mosha -walk on elephant-sized prostheses. The film is Directed/Produced by Windy Borman, Produced by Tim VandeSteeg and Narrated by Ashley Judd.

The social and environmental goals of “The Eyes of Thailand” are to educate and inspire viewers to protect the Asian Elephants and encourage their governments to ban the use of landmines and cluster bombs. Ultimately, the film hopes to convey the added sense of urgency for people and organizations worldwide to pressure Thailand to change the laws in order to protect the dwindling number of Asian Elephants. If nothing is done, the species will become extinct within the next 50 years.
