Hothouse Play Reading Series
As part of the Scriptwriting curriculum at Algonquin College, I collaborated with my classmates and instructors to produce and stage a series of theatre showcases of the students' playwriting work.
My own play, Rosemary For Remembrance, was staged on the last Hot House date, on April 13th, 2015.
"Being dead is hard, but it's even harder when you were never real to begin with. So when Gwen Stacy of 'Spiderman' fame finds herself in the afterlife, she joins a therapy group, because even dead fictional characters need therapy."

I also designed both the poster and playbill brochure.
As part of the Algonquin College Graduate Certificate in Scriptwriting, I developed a concept for a 60 minute dramatic series entitled The Fifth.
Set in 1935 Chicago, The Fifth centres itself around the character of Cee Carlyle, a young woman of Italian-Irish descent living in the infamous South Side of the city.
After the midnight murder of a member of the O’Connell crime family that dominates the South Side’s streets, Cee finds herself in the middle of a domestic drama on a mythological scale when she discovers she is one in a long line of banshees attached to the infamous family, prophets of death in Celtic myth.
Aimed at men and women aged 20-45, The Fifth is Miller’s Crossing meets Outlander. With Irish mythology as a backdrop, The Fifth seeks to explore not only the Immigrant Irish experience in North America, but also the urban immigrant experience broadly. Positioning itself as the fifth cycle in Irish mythology, as the next chapter of an old story centuries in the making, The Fifth asks the key question: what if the stuff always scoffed off as fairy tales were real?
Supernatural Fandom Documentary Short
In 2014, I wrote, directed, and edited a short documentary film for a class about the fandom culture that surrounds the cult TV hit Supernatural.
I hope to soon adapt the concept into a feature length documentary.
This documentary and other fan-works by me were featured in an article in January, 2015 on Worship The Brand, a website dedicated to fan culture and creations.
