Of filmmaking and idols

The past few weeks have been incredibly busy for me. I started the month by working as a production assistant on Jeff Ferrell’s film,┬áLadykiller, and then as soon as that was over, I was given the news that I was approved for an apartment of which I was able to move into later that week….


Tah-dah!

Welcome to my new website and blog. I am still working on a few things– mainly design aspects and the portfolio, but here it is. Some great things are happening and will continue to happen and this is the place to find out all the updates. The best part about coming directly to this site…


I am raised by bats: a blog about fitting in

Most of my life was spent in the goth scene and with circuses, sideshows, and theater. I made great contacts in this circle of people and as I got to know the people in these communities (and believe me, a lot of them are difficult to get to know), I kind of felt like I…


So many books to read, so little time

Actually, I have ample time now that I am technically unemployed and on Tuesday November, 25, I will have graduated my third attempt at college. I suppose it wasn’t really my third attempt at college, considering I finished the first round (technically, twice as I have my associate’s degree and a professional certificate). I only…


Neato Kino rocks… again!

Neato Kino Films did it again! We participated in the 48 Hour Film Horror Project in October. For the most part, it was a pretty smooth weekend, yet again. I met with our trusted editor at LeftJet Studios for the kick off event. After the rules were presented, genres and elements were given. I pulled…


Neato Kino Films rocked the 48!

After about 10 years of wanting to do the 48 Hour Film Project, I finally did it.  I even got my film in on time!  My team consisted of people I had never met before and crazy enough, we all meshed well and worked great together.  There were a few hiccups during editing and we…


Newsy things!

First off, I self-published a short book of poetry.  It is called A Portrait of a Poison and can be purchased through Smashwords.  Most of the poetry is incredibly personal as I wrote a lot of it while depressed and suicidal.  The book itself has been a long time coming and I hope you enjoy it….


Top 6 horror accounts to follow on twitter

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Twitter lately and I’ve been catching a lot of great horror accounts.  When I am going to follow someone, there are a few key things I look for: 1.) Does not solely post links or promote.2.) Seems to have a human behind the account (someone with a…


Fresh blood for Seattle 48 Hour Film Project

I’m participating in the Seattle 48 Hour Film Project this year and I’m intending to shake things up in the Seattle film community. I could have joined someone else’s team and easily been placed as a PA, but I want to write and direct.  That is what I’ve been going to school for and that…


Amazing is just persistence?

I’ve been on a Maggie Stiefvater kick ever since a friend on Goodreads recommended The Scorpio Races to me.  I just finished The Raven Boys and now I’m starting the Shiver trilogy because I pre-ordered Sinner, which is a stand alone companion to the trilogy. She is one of the most inspiring authors for me that I’ve come across…
