Author Bio: My feature debut (GORE, QUEBEC) was a microbudget slasher movie that I wrote and self-financed with a few friends for under $7,000. It went on to win its category (the Blood and Gore Showcase) at the Moving Image Film Festival in Toronto in 2012, and land distribution (DVD, VOD and various online platforms) through Continuum Motion Pictures in conjunction with Entertainment One. The DVD release on Oct. 14, 2014 received attention from notable horror sites like Fangoria, and later that year, was screened at a local Toronto theater as part of Raindance Canada's "Indie Nite" series.

In my day job, I'm a freelance entertainment writer who's worked for The Huffington Post, Moviefone, Men's Health, AskMen, Paste Magazine and Rotten Tomatoes, among others, while I continue to work on spec scripts.

Previously, I interned in development for Tribeca Productions and GreeneStreet Films in New York, reading scripts and writing coverage after graduating from university.
