Check out the series at MediaStorm

In February of 2014 I worked with MediaStorm and Neighborhood Centers Inc. in Houston to produce two short films highlighting the integral role work plays in the lives of individuals.

One of these stories was of Fred Kempster, a Vietnam veteran who spent decades caring for his wife, eventually wearing through his savings and having to start again, alone, at the age of 60.

The other was of Teresa Leon, a Mexican immigrant who overcame considerable stresses as an undocumented worker, including a brutal robbery, in her journey to start a business and life in the US.

The films premiered in Houston in November 2014 and are currently utilized by NCI in their work with stakeholders.
