After a successful career for two top Canadian Financial Institutions, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of writing and producing for the big screen.
In December 2011, I graduated with Honors from UBC’s Sauder School of Business, under the Entertainment Administration Program. During this time, I produced and launched an interactive edutainment game for the iOS platform entitled, THE DOLPHIN, OCEAN RESCUE, based on the book (and subsequent animated film), THE DOLPHIN: STORY OF A DREAMER from best-selling Peruvian author, Sergio Bambaren.
In 2012, I Co-produced CINEMANOVELS, a feature film with Director, Terry Miles and starring Jennifer Beals and Lauren Lee Smith. It premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and the film subsequently received an Honorable Mention for Best BC Film at the 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival.
Starting in 2012, I joined CRAZY8’s, which is an 8-day filmmaking challenge that provides funding and support to emerging filmmakers. Since this time, I have Executive Produced twelve short films and Associated Produced another twelve.
In April 2014, I produced THE BIRDWATCHER, a feature film with Director, Siobhan Devine, which will Premiere at the 2015 Whistler International Film Festival.
In May 2015, I produced another Feature Film, Real Fiction, which will complete post-production in 2016.
In my off time, I write and work on getting a number of my own projects off the ground.
