Portfolio

lt-portfolio-page

The genesis of these story ideas is sexual identity and social acceptance. I am no journalist here, nor am I a spokesperson for any type of social campaign. I just enjoy writing about relationships and personal identities, in the paranormal and fantasy film genres.

Each one of these stories in this portfolio, in part, was an actual course assignment during my undergraduate studies at Full Sail University. I am currently in the process of completing these stories and revising them, in the hopes of finding an agent or development executive who might be interested in where they land.

It’s a game centered on how to make rational decisions as a young adult male and budget your money. A link for the “GAME DEMO” is embedded below to take you directly to a rough draft of the actual video game so you can begin to get a feel for it.
