Screener, Film Festival (2016-2018, Nashville TN)
In 2016, director Dycee Wildman and senior programmer Billy Senese launched their Defy Film Festival at Studio 615 in East Nashville. Because of my film background and extensive film festival attendance, I was invited to assist in screening preliminary submissions in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Character Development, Feature Film (September 2017, Nashville TN)
I was hired by the team behind an undisclosed green-lit feature film project to do a character analysis, development, and feedback.
Development, New Musical by Sarah Aili and Eric Erdman (February 2016, Nashville TN)
Sarah and Eric have been writing incredible new songs and touring for the Box of Letters Project since 2015. I was invited into their collaborative circle to help create the character timelines that will be the framework of what will no doubt eventually be a Broadway-bound musical.
Guest Curator, Fine Art Photography Show of Sebastian Smith (Gallery Luperca, February 2016, Nashville TN)
Gallery Luperca invited me to curate a boundary-pushing show for their February offering. I connected them to internationally celebrated fashion and celebrity photographer Sebastian Smith, selecting 15 images that gave their conservative audience an opportunity to peek into the private pleasures of individuals from fetish communities through beautifully captured photographs with an additional 30 explicit images projected onto the distorted shower wall of the gallery.
Organizer/Performer, Book Launch by Rosie Forrest (The Skillery, August 2015, Nashville TN)
I was connected to Rosie Forrest via Susannah Felts of The Porch Writers' Collective for a book launch for Rosie's Flash Fiction project "Ghost Box...". Rosie wanted something different than the customary reading to present her work aloud for the first time. We worked together to present her unusual works in a new way, with an outdoor staged reading.
