Director Statement

I challenged myself to write and direct a story featuring themes of uncertainty, anxiety, loss, disbelieve, abandonment and torment of which I experienced in the first few weeks of the pandemic.

My stories focus on the outsider who seeks community and a home; honest people who aren't believed. An underdog who needs to be heard. And people stuck in strange lands. Absurd or dark comedy, suspense and drama (with a little horror) are my genre. I specialize in mixing genre and style for truly original storytelling. Happy to chat & explore how structure dictates that :-)
