WRITING

I wrote the voiceover for this promotional film for Amelia James created by Everly Made Films. The goal was to show women that they could provide for themselves and their families and still have time to do the things they love by being an Amelia James Representative.

The second installment of the LOST // DISCOVERED series. A journey of three photographers and a filmmaker searching for their own uncharted wild west. Exploring what was unknown to them.
