“I want to help create something special.”
About ten years ago, my longest and deepest relationship began to crumble. Losing that important person was confusing and hurtful. I spent a lot of time yelling epiphanies at the wall, reenacting arguments and resetting to self-doubt. The whole experience left me in an emotional whirlpool; I sort of spun in a degrading circle for months.
I began taking all the loose thoughts and unspoken words—I began assembling them into a very simple story. Every night, after I put my daughters to bed, I would turn out the living room lights and start my favorite (self-admittedly) melancholy playlist. The words weren’t always easy to find, but they were always worth the effort. I had discovered a very real therapy in writing.
I write a bit to escape, a bit for the joy, and a bit for salve. Writing has become an important and necessary part who I am and what I do. Over the years I’ve collaborated with a lot of friends and a few production companies. I always do my very best to hear criticism, and value partnership. I may work on projects alone from time to time, but the creative process is never a vacuum.
Let’s tell a story. Let’s create something special.
