My first short film, The Paper Boat, was shot on location in The Blue Mountains, Australia, and stars one of my violin students, Tessa McKay.

Logline:  A tech meltdown spurs disillusioned IT consultant Brook to recall her idyllic childhood. She must reconnect with her artistic self or face a monotonous life without passion or meaning.
