I’m a writer-director from Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I started down the path to directing by making little shorts with talented friends and writing about film for magazines such as The Quarterly Conversation and 3:AM Magazine.
I received an MA in English from the University of St. Thomas for my essay about the mechanics of disavowal in Christopher Nolan’s Inception.
After several semesters of teaching film appreciation, I decided to put theory into practice and shot ‘The Burial Plot’ in 2015. At the time, I thought of it as sort of a Schrödinger's cat—when all was said and done it would either be my final film or the beginning of a new phase. There was no way to tell other than to make it and see what happened next.
I’m currently an MFA student at Screen Academy Scotland, so there you go.
