I’m attracted to stories that offer a glimpse into the darker corners of the world. I have a particular fascination with horror and the macabre, as well as the perils of coming of age. Regardless of genre, the most important thing to me are well-rounded and relatable characters.

SLATE/PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT

RITUALS
Short Film, Horror
It’s been a year since the disappearance of Lexi’s boyfriend Michael, a vlogger who specialised in attempting supernatural rituals on camera. Whilst cleaning out his belongings from her apartment, she stumbles upon a notebook containing several proposed rituals, including ‘how to speak to the departed’. Lexi tries the ritual in a desperate attempt to find out the fate of her boyfriend, taking note of the two rules: If an entity appears, don’t break eye contact and NEVER tell it your name.

THE CRUSH
Feature Film, Horror
Erin thinks she’s struck gold when her crush, Alex, leaves his laptop in class, granting her instant access into his mysterious life. When she looks inside she discovers that Alex is far from the idyllic vision she has painted and may be involved in a local snuff film ring.
