Welcome to my “Now” page, which I will keep updated with my latest projects & general situation. If you want to know more about me in general, please check out my “About Me/Welcome” page. Thanks!
Living on the Outer Banks of NC
After a few years out in LA, I started flicking through writing magazines to stare longingly at the ads for writing retreats & residencies. Then, I realized… I didn’t need to pay for a retreat! I already had my own retreat waiting back in my hometown of Manteo, North Carolina, just a beach walk away from the landing spot of the first English colony in America.
I decided to head back east in February of 2017, and have since spent the majority of my time writing, reading, studying, practicing photography, running, & occasionally traveling to fill my inspirational well. I’ve also enjoyed reconnecting with family members & old friends, & of course, enjoying the beauty of the Outer Banks.
Marketing a Feature Film Screenplay
I recently finished the “ready to share with others” draft of a feature screenplay in the magical realism & adventure genre targeting a young adult audience. That’s pretty vague, I know, but I am now starting to share it about in hopes of finding some fellow makers to help push the project toward the only place that matters: the screen! If you are an agent, producer, director, or actor interested in learning more about the specifics of the project, please contact me.
Workshopping a Stageplay…
I also finished the “nearly there” draft of a long, one-act tragicomedy. I plan to workshop the play this summer, with hopes of seeing it on stage soon!
After playing a lead role in the 2019 Theatre of Dare production of “World War II Radio Christmas,” my excitement for performing was reignited. So, I decided to follow what naturally pulls at me:
I’ll be joining the 2020 cast of the nation’s longest-running outdoor drama, “The Lost Colony,” as an actor-technician. I hope to see you in the audience this summer! For more info on the Lost Colony & to buy tickets, head to The Lost Colony’s Website.
Developing a Novella
I have been working on a historical magical realism novella set in a town based loosely on the area I know best: Roanoke Island! Stay tuned, I plan to write, write, write in the next few months, when I’m not acting, of course.
Posting a Travel Photography Series
Last year, I traveled to Guatemala for nearly two months, & had an unbelievable journey around the country. I was amazed at the diversity inherent in both the natural & manmade worlds of the country. Guatemala is a country inhabited by wonderful people & extraordinary wildlife, with landscapes varying from mountains & volcanoes to beaches & jungles, & I came away with more photos than I’ll ever know what to do with…
But don’t worry, I won’t make you sit through them all. I narrowed them down to the top 200 & polished them up, & posted them on Adobe’s Behance site (I don’t practice Instagram at the moment).
