As a writer, my aim is to develop layered and thought-provoking stories that challenge audiences to escape contentment and experience life a little more uncomfortably. To date, I have written three produced screen plays, Red Samurai, Truth Be Told, and NADA. With Unearthing and Emptiness (another script in development), I'm looking to take my career to the next level and am currently seeking new representation.
