Writer, Musician and Artist. I've been writing and publishing my own stories, poetry and scripts for a few years now, and look to bring a new, fresh eye to the film and television industry. Currently, I have two finished short film scripts, a short play, and a television pilot script completed, with a novel, three more short films, and a full-length feature in the works. I also regularly publish poetry, song lyrics and art on my various social media accounts, where I have accumulated a mid-level following of like-minded writers and artists.
Art has also always been a large part of my life (daughter of an artist, niece of a cartoonist, living in a hippie-filled, commune-esque community) and although I hadn't embraced it much through my youth, it has become a large part of my life as an adult. I started with little things, mainly on cardboard and paper and done with found supplies (although living with an artist has expanded my definition of found supplies exponentially...) and eventually moved on to large-scale projects (like the time I painted my entire studio/bedroom/hole in the wall by hand, much to the disappointment of my mother/landlord). I love working with silhouettes, patterns, and odd-seeming colour combinations, and I recently set up a professional profile as a muralist as well.
On top of all the previously mentioned endeavours, I am an adequate cook, an amateur pastry chef, a seamstress, a knitter, a waitress extraordinaire, an adequately skilled driver, a recovering alcoholic, a star-wars enthusiast, a former music snob, a bottle cap collector, a hot mess, a raging pansexual, a supporter of homeless-chic fashion, an occasionally depressed, anxiety-ridden shell of a human being, a cat-enthusiast, a respectful agnostic, a converse sneakers owner, a repressed comedian, and a sweater supporter, amongst other things.
