Friction Machine (2020, ongoing)
Interactive narrative games exploring choice and consequence in the workplace. Practice psychological safety, bystander intervention, and realistic optimism in tough situations. An outgrowth of my work at Ryerson University's IN.Lab. Developed during game jams at Dames Making Games.
Dry Stone Canada Learning Centre (ongoing)
Animating historic sites project with Dry Stone Canada using creative projects (such as colouring books and location-based augmented reality apps) aimed at youth and the public to understand and engage with the legacy of dry stone walls and structures in Canada.

my beautiful commute (2012)
Year long Tumbler blog, north/south daily photos from downtown Toronto to York University. Before the subway and before Instagram.
Designed with you in mind (2005)
Experimental narrationless documentary, sound map, and installation about a failed land planning initiative for Townsend, Ontario, a city that was never built, and the impact it had over a 30 year period on farming families in Haldiman-Norforlk County. Curated as part of Dubious Views: Questioning Institutional Representations in Tourism and Cartography, by Year 01 for Virtual Museum Canada.
An experimental documentary describing one woman's experience with taking a drug to level out her brain chemistry. Visually, it traces and retraces the constellation points of everyday pill-popping. The result? A mind clear enough to notice that the cure itself contains a new set of complications. Laughter. Tricks. Confusion. Change. Curated as part of Split Decisions (2005), a retrospective of the Vtape archive by Paul Wong.
