PORTFOLIO

- The Power of Language -

 

Story and narrative have been a fundamental part of my life. Growing up with a Deaf parent and family members, my introduction to language, before I could speak words, was through the spatial and pictorial communication of Sign Language. Movement brought stories to life—the blur of fingers, the slap of palms, the soar of exclaiming eyebrows—all of these are part of a complex and nuanced language that formed the bedrock of my understanding about how we process, express, and retain information and explore character. This defining style influences my writing and speaks to the way I conceptualize my work—not just as moving pictures in my mind, but a multidimensional cinematic experience that moves through the body as well.
