I’m a freelance writer, director, and editor based in Los Angeles. With roots in guerrilla filmmaking and directing videos within the Chicago hip hop and punk music scene, I’m passionate about telling stories from unique perspectives that are visually stunning as well as creating unforgettable viewing experiences and characters that feel authentic. My work has screened at SXSW, DTLA Film Festival, Rome International Film Festival, and FilmQuest; featured on MTV, Film Shortage, DUST and Awardeo; and written up on UPROXX, ScreenRant, The Daily Dot and Gizmodo. My screenplays have advanced to the second round of the Sundance Institute | YouTube New Voices Lab 2017 and the Semi-Finals at the ScreenCraft Action/Adventure Screenplay Contest 2020. The series I wrote and directed BEACHED was part of the Official Selection at SXSW 2020. Past clients include: NBCUniversal, WhatCulture, Simian Design Group, Studio71, BuzzFeed, and HBO.
