Writer Statement

I like to explore complicated emotions in characters and to that end enjoy writing drama and horror. I feel that when someone is pushed to the limits they gain a unique perspective, and it is in measuring yourself against the odds that you solve any existential crises. I like to dig into that moment when a character thinks the things they're living will break them, and see who comes out the other side.
