hello, my name is tatum! 

the old english translation of "tatum" is "bringer of joy" and that is exactly what i strive to do: bring joy to others through the things i create. 

i am a bay-area based storyteller interested in the intersection of creative writing, art, and music. to do so, i write, i photograph, and i design. 


in december 2020, i graduated from the university of southern california with a bachelors degree in cinema and media studies with a minor in music industry. the number one piece of advice given to film students is "show, don't tell" so with that being said, i hope you enjoy scrolling through my portfolio :)
