About me:

I'm a Canadian (from Toronto), now living in LA to defrost. I'm passionate about storytelling, good food, and discovering new adventures.

My goal as an artist is to bring my own unique voice and the Canadian creative spirit to the rest of the world.

Fun tidbits: My pronouns are she/they. My current obsessions are: googly eyes, disco balls, and dark green. When I'm not working I can be found spending time with my cats, painting, reading, or hiking.

Black Left Arrow

Last Stop Motel

Pink Flamingo Printed Paper

- 1/2 hour drama/thriller series

The Last Stop Motel is truly the last place anyone would want to be. Something the young caretaker "George" is incredibly aware of. When a new guest shows up - and ticks all her boxes - sparks fly. But in this desolate wasteland, are new things too good to be true?

Black Left Arrow

Daughters of Magic

- hour long fantasy/dramedy

Three young witches have to discover their true potential while dodging religious witch killers, power hungry mothers, and romantic entanglements... all while living in a world that is one hairsbreadth away from all out war.

Fire Flame
Black Left Arrow

The Retreat

- thriller feature

A writer takes a retreat to a small unassuming town to clear her head after the success of her debut novel - and find inspiration for her next. She quickly finds herself in over her head when she uncovers a dark secret the town is desperately hiding: a dangerous cult led by the sweet, charismatic mayor’s wife. A woman willing to do whatever it takes to keep her town absolutely perfect in every way.

Black Left Arrow

Camp Riverwood

- hour long dramedy of apocalyptic proportions

A group of counselors expecting a fun kid free prep week as they gear up for another fun summer at Camp Riverwood find their plans quickly changing as the apocalypse hits - and they must now figure out how to survive.

& more...

To me, storytelling is the urge to communicate paired with the need to create.
