Let’s Play Plague Doctor

In the Bay Area of California, the live performance world has completely shut down. I work(ed) full-time as a contortionist, so I hung up my dancing shoes and spent the last couple of months developing the perfect spooky accessory. Behold the Covid-19 unfriendly Plague Doctor Mask!

A Werewolf in Australia (a five-part comedy series about a werewolf vlogger) exists purely because I wanted to create something fun for Halloween.

A Witchy Claymation: The Adventures of Peggy & Linda

I love animation in all of its forms, but claymation is certainly my all-time favorite. Seeing 3-dimensional Plasticine people come to life is like breathing life into your favorite childhood toys.

Sinkhole: A Horror Story

Halloween Boy — A Year-round Holiday Story

Like any kid, I liked Halloween as much as you’re supposed to. Come October 1st, I picked out a wacky costume, geared up for thirty or so days and then walked the streets filling a bag or bucket with candy that would probably only get half eaten. Then, on November 1st, it was over, I

The Haunted Mansion (fan-film) Episode #1

Look, it’s pretty simple, I was just a kid who was 9 about to turn 10 in the summer of 1993 when the movie Jurassic Park was released. Every fiber of my being was primed for its arrival. Hell, I was even reading the novel by Michael Crichton to get my proverbial fix before the
