My 9/11 2011
About My 9/11
My 9/11 is an hour-long video documentary about what it was like to be on the streets of Manhattan in New York City on September 11, 2001. I edited and published My 9/11 directly to the Internet in 2011.
My 9/11 has been written about in The Oregonian, The Portland Tribune, The Sandpaper, NJ Stage, News 12, and it has been the focus of discussions on website forums of all kinds.
What an insight this video is. I’ve never seen 9/11 quite like this.Jack Hawkins
This is a crazy video. Such an intriguing look into humanity in a state of panic.Dom Giuca
Phenomenal video, seeing the reactions of civilians and how everyone came together that day is just extraordinary.dankargo
I’ve seen numerous 9/11 documentaries, but they don’t capture the raw human emotions that this video did. You can feel the shock, horror, and confusion from these people.NefariousEvildoer

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any negative health effects from WTC dust?
Thankfully, no. I wasn’t in the dust too long, and I covered my face.
Can our production company use your footage?
No. I do not license footage from My 9/11.
Why did you take My 9/11 off YouTube?
My 9/11 had over 1 million views on YouTube. When I filed a copyright complaint about another channel monetizing my content on Youtube (separate from My 9/11), Google responded by taking down my channel. I had to go through a lengthy process to get it back on. After that, my videos stopped showing up in YouTube searches, so I deleted all my Google accounts. My 9/11 is still on YouTube, just not on my channel.
Will you speak at our event/school?
Yes. I’ve spoken about My 9/11 at schools, churches, and community centers. I enjoy answering questions, and sharing my story.
