Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a disabled writer, filmmaker, and PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia. My current dissertation research is interested in how people with medically unexplained illnesses — illnesses that evade contemporary medical detection or explanation — build ethos, or credibility. I have two major projects coming out this year: What Kind of Mother, a documentary about my mother's suicide, and Alt Text Selfies, a collaborative project with artists Finnegan Shannon and Bojana Coklyat that celebrates alt text selfies (the image descriptions that accompany self-portraits online).
My work has been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, the National Film Board of Canada, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. In 2021, I received the Emerging Digital Artist Award from EQ Bank. In 2023, I was part of two emerging filmmaker programs, DOXA's Kris Anderson Connexions Mentorship Program and VIFF's Catalyst Mentorship program.
