WSL tapped me to Produce and Edit five films for the We Are One Ocean campaign, an initiative working towards protecting 30% of our world’s ocean by 2030. Because of Covid I wasn’t able to travel to direct these films in person, so I worked remotely, guiding local crews on the creative intentions of the project and set the tone for the series along with WSL’s in-house creative director Kim Hogan and EP Tim Greenberg.
I’m extremely proud of the films we were able to creative despite the restrictions we were all placed under during Covid. To learn more and sign the petition please go to weareoneocean.org.
“As surfers and ocean lovers, the global ocean is more than just our favorite place to play. It is our arena, our office, and our inspiration. The global ocean, its waves and beaches, reefs and high seas, is truly our greatest resource and connector.
We’re calling on world leaders to adopt a target at the 2021 United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity to protect and conserve at least 30 percent of the global ocean, including international waters, by 2030. We urge world leaders to be driven by science, and led by an inclusive process that embraces all stakeholder communities and considers the ocean’s value to the peoples of every nation.“

Spec PSA “Gramps”. My goal with this film was to make something fun to watch that was also inspirational. It takes place in the future, where Covid-19 has been defeated and the world has gone back to normal. Gramps is telling his granddaughter all about how we were able to overcome the terrible disease – by working together and wearing our masks everyday, even if we didn’t want to.

I consider myself a “filmmaker”, meaning I’m capable of wearing many different hats on a film set, or doing multiple jobs at once. But if there’s a single thing I’m most passionate about when it comes to filmmaking, it’s directing narrative films. New reel for 2020.

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.

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.
