Best Person in the World: Ivan Owen

I had the enormous pleasure of spending two days filming 3D printing genius Ivan Owen for ABC News’ Best Person in the World series.  Ivan is one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met, let alone captured on film.  Check out the short documentary below and let your heart flutter.

Dasein: The Art of Being

I spent the month of May documenting Chase Jarvis' Artist in Residency at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan.  We installed an ever-changing photo gallery in their lobby and invited the world to contribute snapshots that we rotated through daily in order to emphasize the notion of "being there".  I found the subject matter fascinating and put my best efforts forward to create a compelling documentary about the ideas that Chase was exploring.
