Telling stories in rural, marginalized, and changing landscapes. Free family picture days, storefront photo shows, live-narrated neighborhood home-movie screenings, marathon polaroid portrait giveaways, and rural outdoor experimental cinema screenings. Small towns, corner stores, bars, SRO hotels, interstate-adjacent. Collaborative ethnography. Where power, memory, race, place, and artifact meet. Research methods: chance encounters, active listening, long walks and longer phone calls, belting karaoke at the VFW, and saying yes to most things. The View From The Woodpile
Always fun, always free. Professional relater. Enlarger of the common life.
