Writing poems and making films are a form of therapy for me. Every film is a poem, every image a phrase. I hope to translate my experience with writing poetry into films that tell honest stories with heavy poetic influences.
I was raised and currently live in Central Maine, and work as a freelance production manager throughout New England. I shoot my own personal, micro-short films, and in February, 2022 wrapped up editing my first professional short film: "blue jay", that is being submitted to festivals.
My love for film grew from my love of poetry and the Walt Whitman and Mary Oliver collections I read in high school. I lived through these poets and craved to be able to appreciate life and the moment around me as they did. Unfortunately, I blamed my anxiety for getting in the way, and instead lost myself in books and movies that transported me away from my own brain.
I make films because I still crave that moment of escape, when the world I'm creating is growing and inviting me. I see that the strongest moments in film come from learning to live in the present moment, like my favorite poets write about, while delivering the story we've set forth to tell. That's what I hope to achieve with my movies.
