BIO

Outside at night, mountains, encyclopedias real or imaginary, wind and rain, ecstatic sound.

Currently based in: Barcelona.

I’m particularly interested in sustainable transit development, migration, citizenship and border control, the fortunes of local culture in the face of globalization, the psychology of landmarks, the conception and use of places as prisons, and the shaping of perceived geography through the media.  I like beech trees, running through boulder fields and jungles, Andrei Tarkovsky and Derek Jarman, Borges, Moby Dick, and Remedios Varo.  I’ve never sat behind the steering wheel of a car, but you should see the mileage on my boots.

If you’re interested in this trip, long-distance videography on foot, joining forces on something, or shoestring travel in the strictest sense, I would love to hear from you, and can best be reached at:
