Unlike any experience in my life

I wasn't sure what to expect with this fellowship. I knew it would be a chance for me to focus on creative projects in a way, because of the space I was in, that I had never been able to before. I could not anticipate how incredibly it would be change me as a person and as an artist. I traded my NY skyscrapers and busy streets for mesas and dirt roads; but I the people I've connected with and the relationships I've formed have really enriched and permanently changed me in such a meaningful way.

Bringing my ten years of filmmaking to the classroom gave me a chance to realize where i have come as an artist since I began this journey. Seeing the elation and the revelation in the eyes of my students was such a rewarding experience and I'll cherish those moments in the classroom forever.

As I write this I'm still living in New Mexico and I've found a new home here for a new me and it's all tied to my time with my fellowship.
