1. Tell us about your latest film.

My latest film is called “Dark Spiral”. It’s scary with a new twist. The movie is done in a way that’s hasn’t really been done before, and I’m very excited about it!  I had a great time acting and directing. I got to work with my good friend Rob Watt, and a whole team of excellent people. I’m very excited for it to come out soon!

2. What drew you to that script?

My friend Rob and I worked on the script, and we wanted to create a project that was scary, entertaining and challenging.

3. Where did you find inspiration for your character?

I looked up some horror classics that I like and mixed a little of myself and a little of the character. That is how Tiffany was created!

4. How is your character similar to you?

She is similar to me in the fact that she is in the same world as me with parties and social media. She gets scared like I would. How is she different? We’re different in how we react to what happens to us, and how we handle what happens to us. Tiffany is a little bit more expressive than me.

5. What do you love about this film?

It was my second time directing and acting at the same time. I learned a lot and had an amazing time on set. It was my first time making a horror film and I loved it. 

6. What do you hope people will take away after watching your film?

I hope that people will enjoy the story, and that they’re entertained and hopefully a little scared. 

7. What other project do you have coming up?

I have another film coming up that I will post on social media as soon as I can talk about it.

8. Where can we follow you on social media?
