#Journey To

This is a documentary series following the Ryerson Women's Basketball team and their Journey to Nationals which they hosted on March 7th 2019. A Total of 10 episodes will be released with 8 finished episodes as of now.

Loving You

“Loving You” is a side project I did that was inspired by Minnie Riperton’s song “Lovin’ You.” The film illuminates the relationship of Margaret and her controlling husband, Robbie, who only loves her for her looks. Robbie’s obsession with his wife is very disturbing. “Loving You” takes the idea of loving someone to a whole new level of meaning and brings awareness to the theme of domestic abuse in the “Me Too” era. Whether you know someone personally who has experienced domestic abuse, or heard about it through media coverage, this story will touch you.

On this episode, we talk about the rise of mass shootings in places of worship in our weekly recap segment, followed by our main topic of Sex In Society. Is there a hyper-sexualization of society?
