Writer Statement

"The Exchange" is the first film that I wrote, from 2016 to 2019 and still revising. It's a comedy and romantic drama inspired by true personal friendships and characters that I came into contact with years ago during an Italian exchange. The month long event (which I wasn't even technically apart of but found myself coming back to) inspired me to write my first feature, a venture I had attempted long before I had even started writing short films.
