Short Summary

I'm an independent Toronto based writer and director currently studying film at Ryerson University. Like any other filmmaker out there with the dream of creating their own stories and characters we all struggle with the same problem... money. It takes a lot of funding to make a film. As a student in Ryerson's film program I know what it takes to create a thought provoking and engaging film. With my knowledge and experience in the industry, I have written a short film entitled "Marty." 

The film is about Marty, a door-to-door salesman in the countryside, who arrives at the house of John and Beth Wilkins. Stricken by the couple’s hospitality, Marty finally finds the parental figures he’s long been searching for, and he’s not about to let them get away.

I am passionate about every story I tell, and every film I make. This is no exception. Marty is a film I've been writing for some time now and am beyond excited to finally put into production.
