Ever since I started my first journal as a kid, writing has been a way for me to tell stories and stay sane in an often overwhelming world. It became so second nature to me that it wasn't until college that I recognized my writing as a gift.
I have a few shorts under my belt so far and I'm currently writing my first feature screenplay, an as-yet-unnamed project about a doubt-riddled missionary journey to an alien planet.
This short film script was my way of confronting the fear of wasted time. It follows a man's life as he experiences the passage of time at varying speeds and eventually starts to panic when he realizes his time will be up soon.
The Pursuit is a romantic comedy with a car chase, featuring a chili red Mini Cooper (naturally). I used The Italian Job script as a reference in this exercise in visual writing.
Whether it's content for a website, blog, print ad, social media account or more traditional public relations channel, I always write from a deep understanding of the client and its key messaging. By communicating consistently and distinctly, I give each story a fighting chance to be heard through the noise.
My lifelong dream of being published became a reality when my college writing mentor encouraged me to submit my best work from his poetry class (which I took on a whim). Three of my poems were accepted for publication in the Spring 2014 edition of The Mochila Review, a national undergraduate literary magazine. Read my chapbook and recent poems below.
