Video & Audio

I have been experimenting with producing short, low-budget video and film projects to help communicate my stories about science and environmental restoration, working most recently with talented young documentary filmmaker Nebiat Assefa Melles. Bigger budgets and more experience would help smooth out the edges. There is no doubt, however, that it’s fun to try new things! Radio also enchants me with its storytelling – my next project, podcasts!
