Work as a National Geographic Explorer:

Thumb

I am currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah, completing work on my National Geographic Society-supported project and documentary film, Glen Canyon Rediscovered. The film highlights water management challenges in the Colorado River Basin and explores the history and impacts of Glen Canyon Dam.

The project is supported by the National Geographic Society, American Rivers, Black Diamond, 5Point Film Festival, and Dagger Kayaks, among others.

The short film Seldom Seen Sleight , produced in conjunction with Glen Canyon Rediscovered, will premiere at the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival in May of 2018. The film was produced with support from the Glen Canyon Institute.

Work as a Fulbright-Nehru Research Scholar:

As a Fulbright-Nehru Scholar, I spent a year based out of Jaipur, Rajasthan, producing a series of documentaries about a diverse set of water challenges. The three focus areas of my research and work were the protection of free-flowing Himalayan rivers from hydroelectric dam development in Uttarkhand, water access in Jaipur's unauthorized urban settlements, and the threat of melting glaciers to fragile water supply systems in Ladakh.

My work will culminate in a three-part documentary series, Pani ki Kahani, slated for release in fall of 2018.

Previously:

I produced, filmed and edited the widely-viewed documentary, Taming the Teesta. The film has been featured in film festivals across the United States and India.

I designed and coded interactive web features on food waste, drone warfare and avalanche fatalities.

I explored the social-entrepreneurial world with my venture, Lanapo.

I worked at Teton Gravity Research and IdeaLondon.

I published writing regarding the process of humanization, the contextualization of whiteness and the deconstruction of privilege.
