Writer and Filmmaker

Hello. How are you? (Click Email to let me know).

I’m a writer and filmmaker based in Vancouver, BC. On my filmmaker side I make narrative films and music videos. On my writing side I’ve published short stories, essays, and book reviews. I’ve also written novels, feature screenplays, and film theory that are just sitting on my computer as of now but I’d like to publish them too one day. That would be so cool. I love writing.

I’m currently researching and developing a feature film with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

You can read essays I’m writing as part of my research here.

I graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2018 with a BFA in film and literature. Since then I’ve been in VIFF’s Catalyst Program and had my work shown in festivals across the country and my writing published in magazines distributed all over North America.

This is really fun for me and I like doing it. I’m going to keep doing it. Thanks for reading. (Click Email to say you’re welcome).

Watch the Video

When I first heard the unfinished version of Super Smeller I’m not sure why but I immediately imagined the camera acting as a probe and getting sucked up a nose. I think there’s a quality to a Doohickey Cubicle that feels kind of intergalactic, a sort of Magic School Bus style science fiction that is both awesome and sweet.

A month or so later Francis was in the hospital and a doctor was pushing a microscopic camera up his nose as he so bravely began treatment for a rare type of sarcoma in his right sinus that, at the time of writing the song and making the video, was yet undiagnosed.

I think everything that surrounds Super Smeller amplified in profundity as Francis underwent surgery and completed his radiation treatment. The song and video now stand for me less as a symbol of the prophetic potentiatlies of art but of its infinite possible dimensions and the countless ways life imitates it, the ways it imiatates itself, and the way life has nothing to do with it whatsoever.
