Visual stories from my life and work.

Chef Gary's Pieroganoff

I recently filmed Chef Gary Krasner, of Urban Eatery, making his delicious "pieroganoff" as part of a bigger, but still secret, project with Gentleman Forager. He put on quite a show with plenty of flames and fabulous flips. I highly recommend a visit to his restaurant to enjoy this special beef stroganoff/pierogi combination – especially on a cold winter night.

One hundred (or more) pumpkins

This short video came about as a collaboration between myself and my friends Jaime Chismar, a designer, and Robyn Dochterman, a chocolatier. Each autumn Robyn makes these edible chocolate pumpkins, all are hand-painted and unique. We wanted to show them off on social media, so we photographed them all and created this fun video.

My friend Kelly's foster kittens

My kind-hearted, cat-loving friend Kelly is fostering nine kittens and the mother cat for several weeks. She's a volunteer "cat cuddler" – such a sweet job – at Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. I made this short video for her on a recent visit to meet the kittens.

Autumn in Minnesota

Fall in Minneapolis was spectacular this year – warm days, gorgeous color and glowing sunsets. I made this video on a walk one afternoon at Silverwood Park while practicing handheld camera movement. I'm also experimenting with adding my handwriting to some of my videos.
