#INTLPLAYER (International Player) is my original documentary project that I’m working to turn into a major series; it promotes cultural exchange, citizen diplomacy, people-to-people connections and independent journalism. It’s a smart, fun exploration of global, urban/underground music, arts & culture, and the logical continuation and ambitious elevation of my current work. It’s the convergence of my professional TV/media experience and my extensive urban arts background.

#INTLPLAYER 2015 was a CSCI supported artist residency in Switzerland, which served as a pre-production field trip. During September, I engaged and studied urban arts and subculture communities of Lucerne, Zurich and Grenoble, France. New material and soundtrack collaborations with beatmakers, MCs, DJs, poets and musicians are forthcoming. I’m planning more field trips to more locations and seeking strategic partnerships with media companies, major brands and other global organizations to increase the project’s scope and begin production. Serious inquiries may contact me here.

Many thanks to the organizations and programs that have supported me professionally and financially thus far the aforementioned CSCI, plus SBSC / DCASE x IAP15 / WTTW-11 and Kartemquin x CFWC x DVID14.
