Upcoming & Published

Before I knew I wanted to be a filmmaker, I wrote stories. As far back as second grade, I remember writing longhand in a spiral-bound notebook, then reading my work to my classmates.
Film soon entered my life and became my dominant medium, but - perhaps inevitably - I eventually returned to telling stories on the page.
