Side projects

I am writing and directing my own short horror film "Aberration", publishing my first book for young adults "Afterglow", and am involved in the Alzheimer's Association.

Ideal team

Although I'm often very bubbly, I'm an introvert at heart and therefore I love working with smaller teams who have the similar creative interests I do. I do appreciate a bit of a hierarchy in a team (I'm highly organized, and so I find that easier)!
