I’m passionate about telling stories that evoke the myriad emotions of everyday life through cinematic imagery (and sound!) and realistic, diverse characters.
My first short film, RINSE & REPEAT, was featured in Canada's National Screen Institute’s online film festival as was my follow-up, MY BUDDY. MY BUDDY was featured in a number of North American film fests, including Montreal World Film Festival and WILDsound, where it won Best Film and Best Actor (tied for the two leads).
I also have experience in Development, Acquisitions, and Project Coordination.
