A comprehensive collection of my work can be found at YouTube. You may find it easier to find videos according to date or topic under the Video sections of Radical Citizen Media.

Videos on lighter subjects like music and events around Edmonton can be found at my other YouTube channel.

I produced a community access television program for Shaw TV called From the Ground Up, which highlighted activism in Edmonton. The show ran from 2013-2017. You can view an archive of episodes of the show here.

I completed a video project about the McCauley neighbourhood in 2013. You can learn more about it here: McCauley Moments. Or, you can just watch it below:

My second short documentary was released in January of 2017 and is about social housing and the inner city. Learn more about McCauley: A Caring Community – Conversations on Social Housing. Below is the streaming film.

In 2019, I created a short documentary (with the support of the City of Edmonton/McCauley Revitalization) to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Boyle McCauley News.

I was awarded a grant from the Edmonton Arts Council in 2018 to create the film “A Monumental Secret,” which deals with an aspect of Ukrainian history. I co-produced and co-wrote the film, as well as being the cinematographer. Here’s the trailer.
