Writer Statement

As a middle class skate punk, I grew up surrounded by friends from all tax brackets. I watched affluent kids boxed in by expectations abandon their relationships with "lower class" friends. I watched good friends spend nights in jail for sleeping in public, avoiding their broken homes. I watched some of those kids die from drug habits they picked up living that way, and I watched some of them find a way out. These people sought to redefine their own American Dream by living on their own terms, reliant only on each other, and we as a nation make that very difficult for them. I want to depict society's rejects in a different light, warts and all.
