The Award-winning documentary A LOT LIKE YOU is the culmination of a lifetime of my personal and professional experience exploring issues of culture, identity, race, class, and gender.
Drawing upon my 10-year film journey, I am currently on the campus/conference lecture circuit. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel around the world, delivering keynotes and conducting workshops exploring the issues in my film, including gender-based violence, global mixed race/multicultural issues, cultural identity and the power of personal storytelling. These talks culminated in my 2016 TEDxSeattle talk, “Why the World Needs Your Story.”
A Lot Like You continues to be used by communities as a springboard for exploring how our stories can connect us to who we are, where we come from, and where we belong.
(Sadly, my digital distributor went out of business in Feb 2020, just before the global pandemic had us all quarantined in our homes. So it is no longer available on AmazonPrime or iTunes. We’re working to get our film back up on these platforms soon…)

In 2004, I founded 9elephants productions, a company that uses art and video to bring stories of struggle, resistance and survival to a broader audience.
9elephants has produced over 80 videos for local and national non-profits working within underserved communities to address social and economic justice issues.
