"Balloons Over Neptune" is a crushingly honest and beautifully whimsical coming of age feature film.
In a sleepy New Jersey beach town filled with disheartened locals and rowdy summer people, a very unique teenager named Winnie ventures to lose her virginity and understand romantic love in the wake of her parent’s volatile divorce and individual struggles with mental illness.
Currently in development.

Following the lead character Aaron around a cold, quarantined New York landscape, we see him struggle to feel anything at all. After spending the past year pushing down and away every feeling he's had in order to survive isolation and social injustice, we find him searching to feel again at a house party where he drinks and does as many drugs as he can until a small question triggers the floodgates to burst wide open.
Currently in pre-production.

I created this short film during quarantine. The separation and forced distance among individuals as well as the rising death toll stirred in me thoughts about loneliness, connection, and loss.
Is loneliness just time spent with the world?
How can we accept loss as a natural part of life?
How can loss deepen our appreciation for life?

I created weekly open mic nights after hearing about so many of my friends’ experiences being isolated in their apartments and finding it very hard to find joy in creating anymore. I wanted to create a space where everyone is welcome, any share is welcome (from poetry to burlesque to music to live paintings to tarot) that serves the sole purpose of bringing joy to those involved.
The community continues to grow and grow, with about 50ish people tuning in per week, and now people who I never met are messaging me asking to share their passions with the group. We have people from Colombia, UK, California, Indiana, Martha’s Vineyard, Texas, and much more, tuning in each week! We celebrated our 1 month anniversary on May 2 and I plan to continue the weekly tradition as long as it continues to bring happiness. Hopefully even more people will join and be able to experience the love that I have been lucky enough to feel every Saturday night.

I met Mikey my freshman year of college. After applying for a bunch of jobs, Mikey’s mom, Eleanor, reached out to me to start working with Mikey as his buddy. Quickly my relationship with Mikey evolved from “buddies” to real friendship. While spending time with Mikey, I noticed myself changing. I saw the way he interacted with the people in the places we frequented, the excitement he took in seeing his friends after just a few hours away from them, the compassion he exhibited for anyone who looked even slightly sad, and his contagious pure joy for simple moments. I decided his story and outlook was something that needed to be shared so that others could experience his magic.
MIKEY is a short documentary that looks into the life and spirit of Mikey Lorch. A beautiful human being who was born with developmental differences. Mikey leads his life in an extraordinary way and has proven to be a teacher and light to those who know him. I hope you can feel his spirit through these small vignettes of his life and that you might be inspired as well.
“I wish the world was a little bit more like Mikey”- Eleanor Block (his mom).

I started this project my senior year of High School, after many afternoons spent in my grandpa’s living room looking through old photos with him and hearing the stories that they inspired. A photo is a little slice of someone’s life and seeing their connection to that slice is really beautiful to me. So, I set out photographing family members, friends, friends of friends, etc and collecting the stories of their favorite photos.
