FILM

Documentary work

The Fall of Mosul

I made a feature-length documentary on how a modern city of almost two million people fell to a force of fewer than 1500 jihadi rebels.





THE RED LINE

Then, I made this other feature length documentary about the history, present, and future of the world's taboo against chemical weapons.




More to come soon(ish).


OTHER PROJECTS

Websites, stories, more






FreeFall

Here's a science fiction short story I wrote while I was travelling, about a group of scientists who get stranded on a space elevator. It was published in Clarkesworld Magazine in June, 2013.
