Writer Statement

I have discovered that I have a knack for utilizing the thrill of adventure to discus the broader issues facing our world, including gender inequality and the oppressive nature of powers that substitute tyranny for the common good. It results in a discussion of “why” that allows the audience to engage with one another to decide what it is that makes them accept things the way they are.

As I develop my art and create more, I am pushing my work to transcend just one form. So while I may write a screenplay to collaborate with other artists to make a film, I am also create a complementing novel that explores the world further. The hope being that I can take the book to places a film may not be able to travel, letting my audience experience these thoughts and questions more deeply as they follow the characters through the world I am writing.
