I'll be updating this semi-regularly when there's something of note to say. 


I'm a cover girl


This is the first interview I've done where I don't feel like a huge idiot reading it. Although I did feel like a huge idiot carrying around a photo of my own face, so it evens out.

It's not available online, but it's the only publication in which I let slip that I had to lie about my age to get into the Gimli Film Fest Pitch Contest, so hunting down a hard copy is worth it if you plan on extorting me. Although the content is focused on the that contest which feels a little yesteryear at this point, it's nice to have a debrief with a bit more distance to the project, and I think there's some good insights about the nature of film development.

Viewfinder is a student magazine. Cassidy Dankochik wrote the article so a big thank you to him and the rest of the Viewfinder team. That's Ophelie Petit, Sam Cortes, and Marley Peters.
