My Short Stories

 

I've been passionately writing short stories since I was 13 years old. Some of them have been dark, dramatic, and depressing, while others have been lighthearted, silly, and fun. Here is a collection of some of my favorites that I've written through the years.

My Prompted Stories

 

In an effort to keep the fresh ideas flowing, I spent a year seeking out writing prompts that interested me and wrote stories based on those. Mostly short, quick reads, collected here are all of the stories I've written based on those writing prompts.

Soundscapes

 

In 2018, still high off the release of Blade Runner 2049 and searching for ways to keep the Blade Runner universe alive in my day-to-day life, I used sound effects and stretched-out versions of songs from the original film along with ambient rain noise to create a three-hour-long soundscape meant to transport the listener into the world of the film. It became quite popular among the film's fan community, prompting me to make another based on the sequel film. There are two versions of each: one with just the music, rain, and wind chimes to mark time, and one with sounds effects from the city of the respective film. Enjoy them below, and learn more about how and why I created them in these blog posts.
