What's good? I had this thing written in 3rd person, but somehow I found the time to rewrite it. Anyway, this is my 'about' page. Here, I'll put facts you should know, updates on what's going on in my life and general feelings about things.
I'm an author and award-winning filmmaker from DC. In 2020 I graduated from the University of Southern California's TV and Film Production program, right at the start of a world-wide plague. My films earned me both the prestigious George Lucas Scholar Award and the James Bridges and Jack Larson Award for Writing and Directing. I went on, aimless for a while until in 2021, I sold my first middle grade novel series, Ethan Fairmont, to Union Square & Co. (Formerly Sterling Publishing). The first book, Nothing Interesting Happens to Ethan Fairmont, publishes this October, y'all go cop that. I also sold my first YA novel, Promise Boys, to Henry Holt/Macmillan, in what was one of the largest publishing deals for a debut YA author ever! Promise Boys is due January 2023, you gotta cop that one too.
As a writer/director, I strive to tell stories that are timely and timeless, but also fresh. I love hip-hop driven content, genre bending concepts and semi depressed and/or psychotic characters.
Cool, now that you know me, I'd like to get to know you. Hit my inbox!
