Writer Statement

My writing represents a margin of society forced to embrace dualism to survive and speaks to audiences who enjoy intelligent adult drama and characters who take risks without the use of zombies, vampires, or superheroes. I am passionate about leveling the international playing field of acceptance by shaping media content that effectuates an honest understanding of mortality, providing windows into various cultures, genders, and race and their inherent struggles as human beings and the acceptance of others.

My intent for this film is to weave terrifying experiences into a beautiful tapestry of allegorical meaning.
