    You can watch Innerspeak here. 

    Hi guys - I made another movie! 

    Innerspeak is a performance-driven short film that I made in a day. I made it to capture some long-gestating feelings that I had, which came to a head shortly after a certain experience of mine.

    I’ve been working in the family business on and off for over 10 years. This experience has come with its own set of troubles and trauma - the business has endured various frivolous…

    Watch Hide and Seek here!

    Hello, my friends. I have a very special post for you today! 

    Hide and Seek was my first foray into filmmaking after three years of trying to pursue a career solely in front of the camera.

    Pretend That You Love Me is a visceral example of no-budget, independent filmmaking that rises above the crop of semi-improvised mumblecore films to bring something truly unique to the genre. Primarily a dating movie for much of its runtime that draws from different examples (episodes of Aziz Ansari’s Master of None came to mind for me), it throws a curveball a little over…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things


    Once studios finance Charlie Kaufman, they can claim to be the saviors of cinema. Until then, Netflix reigns supreme. Thank you for keeping ideas alive.

    “Gonzo Philosophy”, as my roommate put it. Idea after idea after idea after idea as the seconds roll by. 

    What the fuck was this? Seriously, what the fuck? How is something this unique, this off-putting, this incredible allowed to exist? How did they get hundreds of passionate souls behind this idea?
