This might be my favorite project to date. In the summer of 2014, I traveled to Uganda to film this piece for Solar Sister. Solar Sister is an incredible organization, working in Africa to bring solar lighting to the last mile. 

Watch and be inspired.

When Subaru came to Inhabitat.com and asked Editor-in-Chief Jill Fehrenbacher to go on an Adventure Roulette, she knew just who to call to create a video of the journey. 

Jill and I spent the day at Ambika Conroy’s sustainable angora farm and then finished things up at the New York Wolf Conservation Center in Westchester. What resulted is the cutest video I’ve ever had the honor of working on.

This video feels like a real milestone for me. It opened the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York City. In the months leading up to the meeting I traveled to Peru and India to gather footage and culled clips (with the help of a great editor from Doorbell Media) of President Clinton’s trip to Africa this summer. 

The video is really meant to make you feel something, to energize the viewer and to give the audience the idea that anything is possible if we just band together to make it happen. 

The video is called “Mobilizing for Impact”.

Meeting Albina Ruiz and the people behind Ciudad Saludable in Lima, Peru in the summer of 2013 really changed my life.

This video was so fun to create. We interviewed the subjects at our CGI America conference and then I went out to the 826 New York site in Brooklyn to get the footage of the project in motion. So heartwarming and hopeful.

Inhabitat asked me to join them at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to check out the coolest new low-emission vehicles. Here’s the video that resulted from that amazing trip!

I had a blast making this video about section two of the High Line park in New York City. The High Line is an elevated train track that the city has refurbished and turned into an urban greenway in the sky. It is an impressive tribute to the industrial past of the city and an incredible example of the future of design. 

This video is from last year’s BKLYN Designs furniture show in DUMBO. Inhabitat was happy to be one of the media sponsors of the show and we gave out a few awards to our favorite designers. 

There were a lot of hard decisions made but in the end we awarded some really talented furniture makers. Watch our docu-video about the process!

Bigelow Tea is a wonderful company and Cindy Bigelow is a joy to work with. I’ve made a few videos for them and this is my favorite. 

If you haven’t had their products, you are missing out on some deliciousness. You are also missing out on supporting a great, family-owned and operated business. 

I just shot this video at Bloomingdales in SOHO during the ECOLUX Pop-Up Shop. Bloomingdales was showcasing some of the best sustainable designers and we had a chance to talk to some of them about what the event meant for the future of “green fashion”.

If you look closely you can also see a video playing in the Pop-Up Shop itself. I edited that video as well! A video within a video…meta.
