I began working on 48 Hour Film Projects in Summer 2014. It was at Kent State University, and I was eager to work with older students who had the experience I wanted. Two years later, I was in Osaka, Japan, working on my second, and have done one each year ever since.

Featured below is another teaser for the short documentary produced with the help of Pacific University. The story follows my journey to Oregon, and takes a look at some of the people and activities I’ve involved myself with in order to gain perspective about my mental health. In it, I talk about my life, my emotions, and my participation in outdoor education.
