An Army of Hearts


    Life is full of hardship at any age: a grandfather's illness, a new mom's exhaustion, a teen boy's isolation. This uplifting story reminds us that we are never as alone as we may feel, and the one thing that unites us all.

    In 2012, I wrote a book for my Dad while he underwent treatment for cancer. My hope was to display the community that supported him through the most difficult time of his life - his very own army of hearts. The book evolved into an illustrated children's book, full of whimsical wonder and magic, which I self-published in June 2016. It is now my hope to expand this project into a different medium and direct a film to accompany the words of the book. The live-action film will weave through private moments of human connection - subtle, secret, special places - that reveal the utmost importance and unending power of love.
