artistic interest

Social justice facilitator adrienne maree brown writes in her book Emergent Strategy: Art is not neutral. It either upholds or disrupts the status quo […] All organizing is science fiction. If you are shaping the future, you are a futurist. And visionary fiction is a way to practice the future in our minds, alone and together.

As a futurist and humorist, I now write films informed by my involvement with direct political actions from Occupy Wall Street to Standing Rock, and by the hilarious personal lives of my collaborators to envision provocative worlds.
