Research works samples. Senegalese squid packers, American tannery workers, Italian neon-light benders, and British tide clock makers have shared lessons as have empty streets and finches' wings. I bring the methodological expertise, participant observation skills, cultural agility, and analytic rigor that accompany 15 years of producing anthropology across three continents, learning about communities from within. While attention to details is a pillar of my practice, any given detail might not be as important as its context, even misleading when ignored. My devotion to seeking and presenting context is why my practice is so cross-disciplinary and why my work draws so enthusiastically and successfully on the arts.
