Nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll. A federal emergency hotline for people in emotional distress registered a more than 1,000 percent increase in April compared with the same time last year. Last month, roughly 20,000 people texted that hotline, run by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Suicide affects us all and I wanted to show a complicated, yet honest story about survival, loss, and the strength of women in the midst of brokenness and fragility. We need each other so much more than we let on, and Spiraling is our road back to that while breaking type casts and having a long overdue conversation about suicide—and hope.
SPIRALING is a film that tackles the state of our well-being as human beings.
While the world battles an unsettling lack of purpose and belonging, suicide rates have never been higher, anxiety never as prevalent, racism totally polarized, and mental well-being never more in jeopardy.
We are unraveling every day. How any of our stories are untold?
Spiraling has now evolved into an Original TV Series and is a love letter to one another. It’s a call-to-action to act with compassion, conviction, and honesty. Above all, it’s a series of understanding and hope.

A screenplay adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s, Dorian Gray.
The story of a man ruled by desire, lost in loneliness, all the while being haunted by his sins with a painting that tells the tales of his brokenness. Taking place in London in the late 1800s, the story of Dorian Gray is one that is oddly relatable. Through the obsession of youth, power, and beauty, Gray is willing to sacrifice his soul for eternal youth.
A literary masterpiece, this adaptation of Wilde’s most prolific piece of work, is true to the literary wiles it deserves. With robust and endearing characters like Lord Henry, Basil Hallward, Sibyl and James Vane, and an onslaught of those from dingy playhouse owners to aristocracy, this film has murder, suicide, betrayal, loss, beauty, passion, comedy, and love.
Will Mister Gray have the life he wishes or will he destroy everything in his path …
