I’m happy to say that I just signed up to be a representative for the College’s Admissions Department. I will be connecting prospective students and high schools in my region to Carleton via personal contact, school visits, and college fairs. I hope that more people can discover what a great place Carleton can be!

Enjoy (and/or cringe)!
The Oxford Film Festival Community Film that I wrote, Killer Kudzu, is now available to watch on YouTube. I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to write, the fest was fun to attend, and it’s a fun final product!
The short film Hannah White and I created this year at Carleton, “It Won’t Fit in a Killing Jar” just got accepted into the 11th Annual Tupelo Film Festival!
Our short film is based on a short story I wrote about a woman haunted by her insect-loving husband’s death.
The Festival is April 17-19 at the Malco Theatre in Tupelo, MS. More details to come.
Earlier this week I got the memo that I was an official finalist for the 2013 Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest in the category of TV-Existing Series with my Cougar Town script, “Jammin’ Me.”
Thanks to Professor Michael Elyanow and my TV screenwriting class at Carleton! I’ll continue revising and get back to business!
Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, the play I’m Assistant Directing opens today at 7:30pm at the Powerhouse in Oxford, MS! It also runs Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2pm.
The Pillowman is a wickedly dark and witty play about a writer being held by the police in a totalitarian state when they discover that some of his stories resemble gruesome crimes in the area.
Given the dark themes and adult language, this production is for mature audiences only.
The production stars William Chandler, Zach Duane, Inés Joris and David Mckell, is directed by David Hanson and produced by Meaghin Burke.
I also helped make a short film featured in the play. Seen here:
I just presented my comps film to my CAMS department peers – my last official assignment in college.
And good news, fans! That film is now online! Feel free to watch and share my short about the true story and historical scandal of brothers John and Samuel Colt.
The Oxford Film Festival is gearing up for the big show and just released this year’s program online. See my interview about Killer Kudzu on p. 28 and an interview with director Meaghin Burke on the opposite page.
