Chapbook Announcement: Blood, Booze, and Other Things in Nature

I’m delighted to announce that Alien Buddha Press has offered to publish my poetry chapbook Blood, Booze, and Other Things in Nature.

Inspired by slam poetry, punk, and The Beats, this collection tenderly and irreverently explores mental illness, sexuality, the nights we’ll always remember, and the ones we wish we could forget. 

Release date: May 15 2022.

Stay tuned for a cover reveal!

As always, Stay Creative.

Creating GTFO was an incredible journey, and submitting to film festivals has been equally enriching!

To date, GTFO has been officially selected for 5 film festivals:

Symbiotic Film Festival

Lift-Off Global Network First-Time Filmmaker Sessions

Iconic Images Film Festival

Multi Dimension Independent Film Festival

Cult Movies International Film Festival

GTFO was selected as Semi-Finalist, a Finalist, and has now WON an award for Best Short First Time Filmmaker from Cult Movies International Film Festival!!!!

What a ride it’s been:

FilmFreeway has alleviated all the stress of this process; I’d recommend it to any budding filmmaker!

Thanks so much to the Cult Movies International Film Festival and all others for lifting up this #OwnVoices short film. You are proving that sex workers deserve a space in this world where they are validated and humanized. Thank you.

Stay creative!
