"A Place Called Better" Fair Housing Doc

There is nothing more essential than ‘home,’ and it’s the foundation of the American Dream. Here in Colorado, we envision living in a community free of housing discrimination, where every citizen is guaranteed their basic civil rights. The Denver Metro Fair Housing Center is here – to provide the tools to advocate for yourself.

Fantastic Negrito and CalHope PSA

Fantastic Negrito is a multi-Grammy award-winning group from Oakland, CA – led by enigmatic singer-songwriter Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz. NOCOAST was fortunate to spend an afternoon with Xavier to talk about mental health for CalHOPE, paid for by FEMA funding. His presence changed our lives for the better, and I am super proud of what we created together in just a few short hours. CalHOPE offers safe, secure, and culturally-sensitive emotional support for all Californians. Go to for more information.

STS9 - Artifacts

For the past 5 years, I have been editing together this 43-minute documentary about STS9 as a no-budget passion project. I was living in northern Spain at the time, sitting on a small mountain of amazing footage with a lot of time on my hands. What started off as a 3-minute piece, quickly turned into 15, and then by the time I knew it I had a short film materializing at my fingertips. After hundreds of hours of work, I am proud to finally release this project to the world.
