My latest column for Life on the Androscoggin explores the history of the old Holman Francis Day residence at Goff & Court in Auburn. It’s a striking and well-preserved example of Queen Anne architecture at the turn of the 20th Century with giant bay windows and a tower!
Holman Day makes a fascinating portrait: newspaperman, poet, novelist, and one of Maine’s first filmmakers. It seems he and I are living our lives in reverse…
Check out the latest post on my Bangor Daily News column, Life on the Androscoggin, exploring and preserving Maine history by highlighting architectural relics.

My full interview of young music phenom Zella Day from Rogue Magazine Issue #2 is now available online! She wrote her first album at 13 and is now breaking out in a huge way. You may have heard her song “Sacrifice” on the Divergent Series: Insurgent soundtrack or her woeful “Seven Nation Army” cover and, if you like that, you should definitely check out her debut album “Kicker” released this past June. She was a strong, soulful interview and her personality resonates deeply in her music. Elements of folk, pop, rock and soul mix to create her own fresh, unconventional sound. She believes that people respond to her music because of its eclectic appeal. “There’s something for everybody.” Read more at Rogue Magazine HERE!
My latest experiment in animation using a 35mm photograph I took of Wiscasset in the fog and a bird I captured in Rangeley.
My first attempt at animation using a photo I took in Wiscasset, Maine of my favorite ash tree (vectorized) and a photo I took of the crow that haunts my backyard.
So excited to announce that my one-hour TV pilot THE CANE FIELDS has made it through to the semifinals of Filmmakers TV Script Writing Competition!!! This news seems particularly heartening in light of continued demand for projects that more honestly reflect our culturally and ethnically diverse world. I cannot over-express the excitement and encouragement I am feeling that a story like this would make it so far.
The Cane Fields is a gritty noir-esque crime drama in the style of L.A. Confidential and opens on August 21, 1959, the day Hawaii was admitted into the United States. The story presents a complex historical portrait of the 50th State, one that reflects Hawaii’s ethnically-diverse political and socio-economic landscape in the late 1950’s.
