For the screen, poetry & music
When I was nine, my mom brought home an amp and a guitar with two strings
from a local garage sale.
I still can't play guitar.
But I do make music.
I hope to feature a SoundCloud in due time. You can find some of my music videos in the 'FILMS' tab or view my debut from 2016: "Muse".
Produced by Mikaela Reid (ELAR).
All forms of my work begin with an obscene amount of writing.
Samples of Work
The Script Lab Screenwriting Competition (Los Angeles) - knocked out in first round
I submitted to this competition to give myself the goal of completing a script and receiving some professional insight on what I was able to present under a time constraint. Here is the most recent selection of this project:
When the HBIC is in need of hospice care, Kate steps up to the plate.
A family history unravels in the winds of a storm.
Vibe Vessel Treatments (Unreleased Portions)
Here you will find a link to treatments for a visual album and website concept called "Vibe Vessel" . It was released exclusively in May 2018. I am working toward re-shooting most of the film. The current version is available for viewing upon request.
The full treatment and what was shot of the project was sent to HBO in the summer of 2018, a year before Euphoria was released. My vision for Vibe Vessel was ideally the same concept: a well-executed American version of Skins set to killer contemporary playlists. Media in this genre brings together the glamour and drama of modern teen life. I am excited this show exists so that I can stop obsessing over my failed project and pursue deeper topics for myself.
Writer - Director History
Like many other filmmakers, my goal is to become a writer and director. All class projects and capstones I took a major role in developing from concept to script, again in production as Director or Director of Photography, and again in post-production with editing and basic VFX. Graciously I accepted these lead role opportunities and found pride in preparing my crews to perform.
In high school my scripts attended state wide film festivals, including the Virginia High School League for documentary.
Summer and Fall of 2017 my short film writing was featured in Underground Film Festivals taking place in Los Angeles, Helsinki, and Berlin.
Outside of my music I tend not to share poetry. It is personal, as the best poems are.
The poems on yellow paper have been published in an illustrated collection by
Emerson College Writing Literature and Publishing '19.
