Shí eí Evan yinishé. Ta'neeszahnii nishłi doo bilagáana bashish'chiin. Naakai dine'é dashicheii doo bilagáana dashinalí.  

I am a queer Diné creative using filmmaking, music, painting, writing, and photography to document stories, uplift community, and empower marginalized voices. From using vintage rangefinder and film cameras, mirrorless digital cameras, drones, and creativity, I work with clients to thoughtfully finish each project. 

When not working, I spend time painting, creating soundscapes, hiking/swimming/being in nature, tending the garden, making food, and daydreaming about all the colors in the world I haven't seen yet.
