Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work on a project for Narratively with the talented journalist and photographer Pearl Gabel. She invited me to edit her personal piece about living in her neighborhood and the experience of hearing the azaan, the call to prayer, every day from the corner mosque. It was lovely working with Pearl and putting together this story with her audio and photographs. It finally published yesterday, and you can see the full multimedia package here.
My first edit for Fast Company went live this week! My colleagues had filmed an interview/jam session with Reggie Watts earlier in the year, and it was a fun challenge to put together a piece that was both cohesive and celebratory of his deliberately nonsensical appeal. I don't know if I totally succeeded, but he's delightful and his tunes are catchy as hell!
Last summer I partook in a wonderful public art program on Governors Island called Writing on it All. The project was conceived by Alexandra Chasin, and the project manager is my super talented friend Jen Bleier. They brought incredible poets, writers and artists into an empty house on the island and created opportunities for participants of all kinds to write on the walls. Because of the ephemeral nature of the work (the walls of the house had to be painted over and returned to their original condition), I helped film the project to help capture its spirit. We finally finished the edit over the holidays.
