I am a screenwriter, director and artist based in Niagara Falls, Canada. In June of 2018, I directed my first short film Dolphin Girl after winning a Stage 32 Screenwriting Contest sponsored by the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Film Commission. 2019 was an exciting year of travel for me, doing the North American Film Festival tour. Dolphin Girl premiered at Hollyshorts and was a part of many other festivals including Raindance UK, Austin and Toronto International Shorts. Hollyshorts was probably my favorite, It was a blast and the founders are a lot of fun. There, I watched Dolphin Girl on the big screen for the first time, met some other very talented filmmakers in the 2019 S32 Short Program, and spent time with RB and Amanda Toney -- my two favorite Stage 32 people! At Hollyshorts, I met another filmmaker in the lobby of the Chinese Theatre; a Director/Producer out of LA. We hit it off, and currently are in development with my next short film T A L K.
If you are interested in reading any of my award-winning short scripts, please message me. If you want to learn more about my Dolphin Girl project please read my posts and updates.
