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

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 – evolved to support educational and advocacy efforts, utilizing multiple platforms and media to have maximum impact in reaching diverse audiences.  

Current 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 projects is equally transdisciplinary, producing projects spanning a range from journalism to oral history and political art exhibitions.
