In addition to my own projects, I freelance as a multidisciplinary storyteller and creative lead in all stages of development and production in film, VR, web series, documentaries, publishing, comics, interactive, and everything in-between. I've partnered on a wide range of projects with agencies, studios, fellow indie filmmakers, interactive and game developers, and non-profit organizations. I always welcome opportunities to work on new and exciting projects, no matter the medium. Let's talk.
