Writer Statement

As a writer, I'm primarily interested in character. I've never been a big fan of "Hollywood" plot driven narrative film and have at times struggled to conform my writing to its format. IN BETWEEN DAYS, is based somewhat on my childhood, growing up in Baltimore. The experiences of the lead character is familiar to me - from the challenges of conforming to established racial and social identities, to his passion for music. As society focuses more on diversity and the representation of certain groups of people, I want to highlight the fact that many of us do not fit neatly into categories and it is in that space, my story takes place.
