TOMORROW'S SHORES (2017)

A vignette reflecting on the world as we pass it from generation to generation, set in a grim future where most wildlife has gone extinct due to a rampant environmental catastrophe

 

Entanglement (2016)

In a not-too-distant future, as the world outside falls apart, people can live out their lives in solitude without ever leaving the safety of their home. Everything is for sale online and brought to their doorstep, including the need for human interaction. Entanglement exists as a service to bring people together, connecting soulmates who can promise to make each others' lives whole.

The Original (2015)

Maia Long is a computer programmer evaluating a digital replication of her own mind. She notices that the machine is growing rapidly and thinking for itself. As the situation grows out of her control, Maia's interaction with her simulation casts her own individuality into doubt.

Contagion Machine (2014)

The story of a theater projectionist living under an oppressive government, and showcasing propaganda films to the population.  Disillusioned with his position in society and the constant surveillance of his rulers, the young projectionist finds himself drawn to a mysterious girl who attends his theater.

about

I am a filmmaker based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In my work I am interested in examining the consequences of technology, new and old. I focus on modern relationships between people who are forced into contact because of the systems that dictate their lives.  My love for science-fiction and magical-realism has led me to develop unique and strange worlds as allegories for our own.

I graduated from the University of Utah in 2015 with an Honors BA in Film and Media Arts, as well as a Minor in Business.  I am currently establishing myself in the film community, proud to collaborate with other passionate artists while I produce on my own films.

Some of my favorite movies include Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, and Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away. But let's be honest, when John Carpenter made The Thing, we should've stopped making films because nothing else was ever going to top that.
