The origins of Tumbleweed road

Tumbleweed Road came about as a collaboration between myself and Patrick Dell, Senior Video Producer at The Globe and Mail. 

In late 2015, I lost my father figure, Paul, to cancer. He left me a massive and unusual property in northern Ontario and the task of managing his estate. Paul lived a extraordinary life that took him from Kenya to Paris to Toronto. The process of tying up his loose ends and managing his affairs introduced me to aspects of his character and past I didn't recognize. Tumbleweed Road was an exploration of getting to know someone again after they've passed through their physical belongings.
