Thank you for showing an interest in supporting my work! It’s fans like you that help me bring my stories to the silver screen (or pretty much to any video screen nowadays!)

Some people are put off by the fact that I work in the horror genre. The truth is, I don’t usually write screenplays that are typical, run-of-the-mill slasher flicks. I prefer to create character-driven stories that jump between genres. More like Silence of the Lambs rather than Friday the 13th.

I got my start in film-making in 2008 by working as a screenwriter and special effects artist. I worked on the set of dozens of projects before even considering taking the director's chair. I directed my first film, a feature called Predatory Moon, in 2013 and have been at the helm of several smaller film productions ever since.



After receiving many accolades for my work from various film festivals and screenplay competitions, I realise that I’m now at the point where I need to produce movies with original stories more frequently in order to reach my goal of joining the ranks of notable female directors.

Film is a collaborative medium and being able to hire a talented cast and crew to bring my stories to life is so important for the success of a movie. Your patronage helps me do that, and I look forward to sharing those successes with you!

Level One - Fan
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
As a Fan, you'll get access to:


* Film-making essays, including my tips on how to handle those crazy issues that pop up a lot!


* Tales from behind-the-scenes, many of which are not widely known. 


* There might even be a surprise video once in a while.

Level Two - Big Fan
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
Isn't it aggravating to hear about how a script is doing well in competitions but you have very little idea of what the story is about?  


As a Big Fan you'll also get weekly access to:


* Excerpts from the screenplays that are currently in competitions.  (Posted in sequential order.)


* Scenes or outlines of early draft screenplays. (Posted in sequential order.)


* After an entire scene series has been posted, you'll be invited to participate in opinion polls and discussions about the screenplay.

Level Three - Hardcore Fan
$10 or more per month 1 patron
Want to be among the first to know about my up-coming movies and how things are progressing from concept to the end of production?  Want to see videos and photos from my previous films that were never released to the public? 


As a Hardcore Fan you'll also get:


* The inside scoop on film projects that are in development or production.


 * Access to opinion polls and discussions for current and future film projects.


* Sneak peeks at development work like concept art, costume designs, and creature/makeup designs that aren't usually seen by the public.


* Behind-the-scenes videos, many of which you will never see anywhere else.


* The first look at photos of props, prosthetic makeup pieces, and whatever else I'm building for my current project before they are released to the public.
