In my years of editing public policy and the arts I remain passionate about representing, through an eye level perspective, the visionaries in our community who can provoke public discourse and inspire civic action.  Among recently produced projects are:  Staten Island's Living Breakwaters, with SCAPE Studio, Lisa Kudrow At Vassar | A Conversation With Abby Baird, Sam Waymon | On Music And Resistance,  Rich Iannuzzi: A Path To Living In Harmony,  Andy Golub | Body Art, and 12 profiles for the Stand By Your Mail campaign with Greenhorns/Local5
