As an independent multimedia journalist, my longform reporting investigates issues of discrimination, stigma, and social exclusion and the community-building efforts to counter them, with a dual focus on public health and migration.  

Two long-term documentaries on HIV/AIDS – On Borrowed Time about children and teenagers in the U.S. and The Graying of AIDS on the global aging of the pandemic – support educational and advocacy efforts, utilizing multiple platforms and media to have maximum impact in reaching diverse audiences.  

Documentary bodies of work in progress investigate the fate of Chinese migrants who survived the 1993 Golden Venture human smuggling ship disaster and the asylum politics impacting Afghan refugee youths in Berlin.  

As an educator and mentor, my work with community youth media collectives is equally transdisciplinary, with projects spanning a range from journalism and art to oral history, producing print magazines, poster campaigns, tv programs and political art exhibitions.
