“SHAME”

This has been a shameful week to be a white American. I don’t know about the rest of you but along with anger, “shame” has been the most prominent emotion I’ve felt. I learned how naive I was to think that the one thing the world could collectively agree upon was the condemnation of Nazis (and the KKK). Despite everything…

“FATE DUST”

HEY! HAPPY FRIDAY! It has been a week! Firstly, some good news in feature film land! As you may or may not know I have been on the hunt for a producing partner for my film and though I cannot yet say that I have found that person, I feel like I have made some progress! One of the “reach”…

“ATROPHY”

Before I get into it, I just want to give a big shout out to everyone who reached out to me personally to share their experiences after my post last week. Thank you, THANK YOU!!! Hearing from you was exactly what I needed and a huge reason why I started sharing my experiences to begin with. By continuing to share…

“THE THING ABOUT DEPRESSION”

Cold open: THE THING ABOUT DEPRESSION // 7.13.17   The suck of the sand underfoot, in the time between. Always pulling, No matter how far out of mind, out of reality… but it doesn’t work that way. There’s a pit that gets you deeper, the longer you stay in, the longer you stay away. It’s a crater in your soul.…

“REFLECTION”

Hey there! Happy Friday! It has indeed been a while. Personally, I’ve been crazed! It’s true what they say, especially in the freelance world, when it rains, it pours! So it has been figuratively pouring on me in job form for the past 1.5 months. This has been so wonderful, not just for my bank account but also for my…

“DEFENSE”

Hey strangers! I haven’t had time to blog for the past few weeks, not sure if you’ve noticed. Don’t really have time today either but I wanted to at least put up something… This post isn’t completely in line with what I usually write about but I witnessed something strange happen on the subway last night and wrote a poem/short…

“THE LITTLE THINGS”

And just like that, it’s summer! (Well not officially but it’s been 90 degrees the past few days in NYC and if I leave home without my sweat rag, things get ugly.) THE LITTLE THINGS // 5.19.17 It’s that moment when, You can’t control your body, Grin and jump for joy. Feeling like a kid, “Thinking” rests in the back…

“FEAR”

What up, Friday people? You may or may not have noticed that I did not blog last week. I’ll be honest, there were just not enough hours in the day and I didn’t plan well enough ahead. I’d like to believe I had a good excuse because I was finishing up pre-production for a new short film (that we shot…

“THROUGH THE ROUGH”

Today feels like a happy Friday! This was a pretty good week. I wrote almost every day and am now halfway through the 3rd act of my screenplay! Basically, the end is in sight and I am thrilled about it, not to mention this draft (#13) feels like the real deal. I mean, it will definitely continue to be revised…

“SPRING”

Spring is here and it’s the best! Though it’s cloudy today it has been so nice out and the weather forecast for next week looks lovely. I always want to pretend I’m not affected by seasonal depression but it’s crazy how much the warmer temperatures and longer sunlight do affect my mood positively.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all…
