After working for thirteen years as a professional screenwriter, TEN MORE is my directorial debut. In the prime of my career, I was struck with a brain injury that left my future uncertain. This film offers a suspenseful glimpse into the moment I accepted my new reality. It was my privilege to work with two incredible actors, David Pasquesi (Veep, Angels and Demons) and Ellie Reed, (Netflix’s GirlBoss), who gave this story life beyond my imagining.
