The incapacity to name is a good symptom of disturbance. – Roland Barthes

Subscribe to this year-long anthology of genre-defying video literature!

Released in 12 monthly installments (September 2023-August 2024), this suite of short films troubles the boundaries between  literature and cinema. Good Symptom is curated by M Freeman, Rana San, and myself.

These are showcases of literary media arts experiments that push the language of poetry, essay, correspondence, autobiography, manifestos, thought pieces, and hybrid literary works off the page and onto the screen.

Subscribers to this series will enter a world that disregards genre and disturbs the definitions of literary and media arts with 1-3 short films and accompanying critical essays by project curators and guest writers.


A writer and curator exploring the liminal spaces of the literary arts. I am the author of two chapbooks and have fiction, reviews, and poetry published widely. My interest in how words can be experienced has led to solo work and collaborations to create installations, music performances, broadsides, karaoke, and video poetry. I founded and directed Till, a literary organization that offered an annual writing residency, and am currently co-director of Cadence Video Poetry Festival at Northwest Film Forum.


Approaching communications and marketing with a storyteller’s craft and a poet’s ear. I have more than a decade of experience increasing engagement with meaningful brand experiences through creative approaches. My unique blend of marketing, programming, and writing skills allows me to understand and connect with a wide spectrum of audiences. I have defined and produced end-to-end experiences for artists, businesses, consumers, and stakeholders while growing followings and margins across industries.
