Tokurin-ji: My Experiences Living in a Japanese Zen Temple

How To Make Cinnamon Rolls While Camping

An Elephant Never Forgets (2012)
This is a documentary that I co-produced and directed with three other talented filmmakers. It is about Packy the Pachyderm, the nation’s oldest elephant in captivity. He turned 40 years old in 2012, so this film documents his history and his current importance in the Portland community. This film was also a finalist in the OpenLens Film Festival and has aired and continues to air on Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) as a bumper.
