"Snooze" is my first fully written and directed short film. The story follows a college freshman named Shawn as his poor choices and lack of sleep slowly begin to catch up with him. All the events in this film were inspired by my own experiences with college burnout and even one unfortunate fire alarm incident.
This film was made as a final project for my Introduction to Screen Language Course at Boston University.

Dtwn X-ing is a montage featuring photos from the Downtown Crossing Neighborhood in Boston. It was created for my Introduction to Screen Language class at Boston University. The montage gave me an opportunity to explore my interests in street photography and urban storytelling.
During the summer of 2017, I participated in the Florida Film Institute’s (FFI) program for high school filmmakers. During the program, I was part of a team of 50 students who made a short film called 'Tuned-In'. The film is about a school shooter in the making and her struggle to overcome loneliness. The screenplay was developed from a short story I wrote in 2015. For the film, I worked primarily as the lead writer. I also designed the poster and collaborated with the director to edit the film. This film was my first time working on a student film. After the experience of working on a real film set and collaborating with a talented crew, I decided to pursue a degree in Film & Television at Boston University.
