In 2005 I traveled to the mountain village of El Rito, New Mexico to study adobe construction with Quentin Wilson. After more than a decade of learning and field work I now teach my own series of earthbuilding classes which guide owner builders through the design and construction process of a healthy and energy efficient home using earth as the primary building material.
I collect audio field recordings at home and abroad - often starting with one-on-one interviews as an introduction to a topic or place. Examples of this work can be found in my Mud Talks podcast series. Recently, I have been documenting quiet & rural landscapes and the sounds experienced in them. Examples of this work can be found in my SoundCloud portfolio.
I collect still & moving images during my travels - often collaborating with artists and musicians I meet along the way. My early moving images were shot on Super 8. Examples of this analog work can be found in my music video archive. Recently, I have been documenting quiet & remote landscapes and the people and activities observed in them. Some examples of this work can be found in my Cargo Collective portfolio.
