Right, Down + Circle
ECW PRESS, fall 2023

Post Radical – Vice
I worked as a writer and researcher on the acclaimed documentary series, which explores obscure skateboarding subcultures from around the world.
My jobs included writing the voice of the narrator and finding the subjects we showcased — from a Taekwondo/skateboarding instructor in Ethiopia to a group of intensely passionate individuals who turned a small Bavarian village into the world hub of fingerboarding.
