They have since expanded with One Square Mile Films and BoxedDOCS initiatives, which focus on branding films and documentaries.

In addition to their documentary work, the couple also leads DOCshops documentary filmmaking workshops across the country. Their approach is focused on capturing the human perspective without skewing the intent and viewpoint of their subjects. As filmmakers, they are focused on creating meaningful films with as many outside perspectives as possible to showcase the diversity of our nation while reinforcing a sense purpose
