A lot has been going on for me since I last checked in. I hope all is well with each of you. I've seen a few folks over the past two years, but we definitely need to have a reunion soon. Congrats on everyone's successes! 

So, here's an update from me: After a great year long festival run, we premiered A FRAGILE TRUST on Independent Lens last May. Alongside our national broadcast, we also launched our interactive journalism game, DECISIONS ON DEADLINE too! We are super excited that the film and the game are out there in the world educating folks about what it means to make ethical choices in journalism in the digital age.

This past August, I moved to Austin to start the MFA program at the University of Texas at Austin. It's hard to be back in school when you're my age, but I am loving the time and space to make more of my own work. Come visit!

My latest film, Shotgun of Faith, is a short doc that chronicles a season with Barry Chinn, an ailing Texas cowboy pastor. As the number of literal cowboys in Texas dwindles, can he grow a church based on a way of life that hardly exists anymore? With an intimate observational style, this short film reflects the complexity of what it means to welcome inevitable change while attempting, in part, to stay the same. We just screened at SXSW and we're moving on to Sarasota Film Festival in a week or so! Come on out if you are around!
