In 2012 I wrote and produced two short documentaries about teenagers in Canada for WDR, German Public Television. They are part of a series of videos for English Second Language students in Germany.

The films were broadcast in October 2013 and have now been posted online.

Taylor – Living for the rodeo tells the story of a girl from Langley, B.C. who is so passionate about rodeo, she spends almost every weekend travelling the province to take part in competitions.
