A feature length thriller set on the Oregon Coast

Inspired by 50s noir, early Roman Polanski films, Body Heat, and French films like Strangers by the Lake and See the Sea, I wanted to create a movie full of TWISTS AND TURNS where nothing (and no one) is exactly what it seems. These stories are both entertaining and important, exploring the idea that we are all complex, complicated people.


SEASIDE is MY LOVELETTER to my home state of OREGON. The rugged cliffs, windswept beaches, quaint towns, and crashing waves of the Oregon Coast is the perfect location for a feature film about the dangerous beauty inside all of us. The line between “the sand and the sea,” between our rational and irrational selves, and our (in)ability to know and understand our own minds (especially when it comes to love) is a fascinating theme to me.
