MSHSAA High School Basketball Tourney

Emotion was high at the MSHSAA basketball tournament for Missouri high schools. I shot this weekend for the Kansas City Star. Since I was there for most of the day I looked for little features in between games too.

In a town that loves Mizzou basketball the achievements of Columbia College can be outshined. Last night Columbia College finished an undefeated season and beat Park University to win the American Midwest Conference tournament. The final score was 77-63.

T/F 2013: The Collective Architecture of the Impossible

It's exhausting having this much fun. This was my third at the True False Film Festival and my last as a student at Mizzou. I think I realized this year how much the festival means to the community in Columbia and why it attracts so many from outside the bubble of the mid-mid-belly-button-of-the-US-midwest. I loved seeing little kids dressed up as robots at the March March and 70+ year old women dancing and giggling in the Missouri Theatre at the Jubilee. I was inspired by the films this year to be honest, heartbreaking and funny all at the same time revealing the little surprises that life has to offer. Until next year, True/False, thank you.
