I am a director, producer, and science communicator driven to explore the human dimensions of conservation. I recently directed an award-winning web series for Parks Canada about the return of bison to Banff National Park and I am currently working on a short film called Rockies Repeat that explores the cultural impacts of climate change.

My work has appeared on the National Geographic Voices Blog, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, the Banff Park Museum, the Calgary Zoo, Xploring by the Seat of Your Pants,.
I also founded and curated Parks Canada's first-ever blog.

Recent Film Work

Rockies Repeat 

Director + Producer
2021


I am directing my first short documentary called Rockies Repeat, which explores the cultural impacts of climate change. It follows a collective of womxn, non-binary, and two-spirited artists, of Indigenous and settler heritage as they revisit iconic alpine landscapes by early Banff artist, Catharine Robb Whyte.  Their journey is moving, heartbreaking, and healing. 

The film is currently in post-production and debuts at a feature exhibit at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies as part of the  2022 Exposure Photography Festival.

Bison Vlog Webseries

Director 
2019


As a Digital Storytelling Specialist for Parks Canada, I directed a five-part web series about the return of bison to Banff National Park.

The series follows a team of scientists as they work to return a keystone species to Banff's most remote valleys. It garnered both a Travel Alberta award and a CEO award, Parks Canada's highest honour.

Walking With the Buffalo

2019

1/2

In partnership with Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, I co-produced a film with Indigenous youth filmmakers from the Nakoda AV Club about the cultural importance of bison. 

 I led the crew on a multi-day horse expedition into the remote backcountry of Banff National Park. Then the youth crafted a short doc that was showcased as a feature screening and panel talk event at the 2019 Banff Mountain Film Festival.

I teamed up with Daughter Creative to develop an interactive educational exhibit about the historic return of bison to Banff National Park. ​As the project manager, I led the conceptual design & copywriting while the team at Daughter Creative made it come alive.

 

The exhibit debuted at the Banff Park Museum, in the heart of the town of Banff.  It is now part of the permanent gallery at Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site.

Calgary Zoolights

1/1

I worked as the creative director in collaboration with lighting engineers with Limbic Media to develop an interactive light sculpture that made the Banff National Park bison reintroduction come to life at the Calgary Zoo's annual ZOOLIGHTS event.

 

The voice-activated LED lights move in response to sound, creating a mesmerizing experience and a tangible connection to an exciting conservation story.

Photography

 I'm a film photographer using 35 mm to document fleeting moments of adventures in some of the most incredible western landscapes. My goal is to evoke a sense of wonder and nostalgia for wild places.
