What happens to the Final Girl after a horror movie ends?
After surviving a horrific weekend at a remote cabin in the woods where all of her friends were brutally murdered, Ashley finds herself in handcuffs. Her story is extraordinary, and the cops who brought her in for questioning don’t believe a word of it. The FBI sends in a psychologist, Dr. Warren to determine whether Ashley is completely crazy, or if there’s more to her story…
I’ve also completed a feature length version of the script which I hope to get into development soon. It begins with the events of the short film, then follows Ashley as she tries to go back to her normal life, knowing nobody will believe what happened to her. Meanwhile, The Box begins to spread its evil once again. Ashley is recruited by Dr. Warren and her top secret organization “The Vigil”, comprised entirely of women who have survived horrific supernatural events, and together they try to stop The Box once and for all. Think of it as Evil Dead meets Charlie’s Angels.

Bubbly on land, but a force to be reckoned with on the water, Proteam surfer Coco Ho invites us to take a dip in her life in Hawaii and tells us about why being a woman gives her an edge in the world of surfing.
I DP’d this film for Swatch and World Surf League.
In Swatch Proteam surfer Tia Blanco’s life, balance is everything: on a yoga mat and in the kitchen just as much as on a surfboard. In the second episode of the OUT/IN video series, we dive into Tia’s world and discover her connection to the sport and how her mindset shapes her path on the WSL World Championship tour.
I was the director, DP, and editor of this project.

There’s no doubt that Swatch’s Proteam athletes, Courtney Conlogue, Tia Blanco and Coco Ho, are making waves in their sport. We’re excited to present these surfers in OUT/IN, a four-part video series that shows the duality of three of the WSL’s most talented stars. The first episode zooms in on Courtney and goes behind the scenes of the fierce, pink-powered athlete we know and shows her more artistic and fashion-forward side.
