I like questions. I have a lot of them.
Questions are open and flexible. Questions are mystery and magic. Questions are the journey; answers, the end. Rigid and closed off, answers have betrayed me and let me down. I am wary of the knowers. Power, wisdom, solace – these are found on the journey, in the questioning.
Uncanny Means is my corner of curiosities – a laboratory where I examine the dilemmas of our time through a personal and mythic lens, with the hope of transmuting anxiety into empowerment and helplessness into sacred activism. Throughout the site, I’ve linked to additional resources, essays and more, to keep you inspired, to keep you questioning.
Start from anywhere and enjoy the journey.

I am a queer writer, filmmaker, storyteller and creative/spiritual guide. My narrative feature, Tiger Orange, premiered at Outfest and was released by Wolfe Video worldwide. You can catch it on Netflix, Amazon, etc. I’m a Nicholl Semifinalist and a Film Independent Fellow. I have directed theater at the Geffen Playhouse, the Skirball Cultural Center, and with underprivileged teens from all over Los Angeles through “City at Peace”. I have written for IndieWire and Moviemaker. I have a certificate in Applied Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a BFA in Acting from Marymount Manhattan and I’m co-owner of theOffice, a quiet sanctuary for writers here in Santa Monica for over 15 years. I’ve coached and collaborated with screenwriters, poets, actors and other creatives throughout my career. I also study and work daily with the tarot as a tool for connecting with the muse, carousing with the shadow and aligning more fully with the highest self. My client readings are a dialogue of discovery informed by mythology, numerology and over 25 years of sacred play in the storytelling arts.
