My 9/11 2011
About My 9/11
My 9/11 is an hour-long video depicting what it was like to be on the streets of Manhattan during the 2001 World Trade Center attack. I shot the video in 2001, and edited and published online it in 2011.
My 9/11 has was viewed over 1 million views on YouTube. It was covered by KATU News, The Portland Tribune, The Sandpaper, NJ Stage, and NJ News 12. The video is cataloged in the Internet Archive, and it also was the subject in the first episode of Des docus et des Hommes, which is a web series dedicated to documentary filmmakers.
I have spoken about and/or screened My 9/11 in public venues such as Hangzhou Jr. High School, Place Gallery, Paramount Escapes Ocean Breeze, Catlin Gabel School, and the Universalist Unitarian Church.
What an insight this video is. I’ve never seen 9/11 quite like this. Jack Hawkins
This video has always stayed in my thoughts ever since I saw it years ago. This is a truly unique view of the confusion, devastation and anger of onlookers on the ground in NYC as the horrors of 9/11 were unfolding in front of them. tetramorph
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
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 (unrelated to My 9/11), Google responded by taking down my channel.
I had to go through a lengthy process to recover my content. 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’m happy to share my story and answer questions.
