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.

Twin Cities Marathon video

Cheering on the runners in the Twin Cities Marathon is such an uplifting experience, and I try to do it every year (with the exception of the few years I ran in it myself). This year I watched from the mile 7 marker near Lake Harriet, and I made this video of the competitors and spectators.
