Awards

Here are some awards I have received and this is where I brag about it.

But does anything really mean anything when we're all just skeletons covered in a meat sack trying desperately to make meaning out of nothing? Hold me.

The Masses

The Masses is a post-partisan, omni-racial, multi-gender, quasi-radical, sketch comedy show that represents the perspective of the artistic and creative counter-culture that is actually the mainstream. The tone will be the “Twilight Zone” meets sketch comedy - creating scenarios that are rooted both in reality and in our surreal dystopian not-too-distant future. Centered on a cast that will range in age from 18 to 80 and will be so racially/sexually/bodily diverse that Benetton ads will cower in shame; The Masses will contain social commentary peppered with absurdity and pure hilarity.

Sibling Sunday

Sibling Sunday explores the juxtaposition of mental illness within the confines of the home vs. inside the walls of an institution. The main character, Alex, feels like she is the anchor to her brother’s sanity and unconsciously believes that if she can save him from his struggles someone will be able to save her from herself. Alex works at a mental hospital as a dance therapist in an effort to channel her desire to help her brother. Alex’s mental patients respond to her, but a new participant, Miriam, challenges not only her approach to healing but also who she is as a person.

Death of a Matriarch

The Matriarch of a wealthy family is dying, but still within her grips are family secrets she doesn't want to let go of. Her denial of rape culture within society is echoed in her relations to her daughters and granddaughter. Within the mansion of a matriarch a toxic culture of elite identity impacts everyone uniquely - breeding narcissism peppered with a deep denial of self and the feelings of others.

All the Clouds

The two couples represent freedom vs restriction.
