How we identify ourselves, interact with the world, and behave with one another are all mediated through story. Stories are our window onto the world.
From childhood, I’ve used writing as my primary tool for reckoning with the intangible and overwhelming challenges of life. Fiction allows me to carve out a slice of reality, abstract it, grapple with it, and ultimately digest it in the hopes of becoming a better person than I was the day before.
I consider myself a storyteller because I enjoy telling stories in whichever medium cuts to the heart of things the cleanest. Filmmaking and documentary are dear to my heart and I’ll be the first to admit that the cinematic lens heavily colors my writing.
I hope you enjoy spending time with my stories as much as I did making them.
