My Favorite Quote

"To begin... To begin... How to start? I'm hungry. I should get coffee. Coffee would help me think. Maybe I should write something first, then reward myself with coffee. Coffee and a muffin. Okay, so I need to establish the themes. Maybe a banana-nut. That's a good muffin." Adaptation

About Me

Before I could even properly hold a writing instrument I would record stories on my Fisher-Price tape recorder. My love for story grew, from writing stories in elementary school, to writing and directing plays in my high school theater troupe, to studying Dramatic Writing at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. These days I write TV pilots, screenplays, and short fiction and I'm a coach for an online writer's circle. I've had a short film optioned and produced and a piece of short fiction published in a speculative fiction magazine. My writing has been named a finalist in the Writers Store Industry Insider Screenwriting Competition, winner of the Original Teleplay category of the Slamdance Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, a semi-finalist in the Hour Pilots category of the Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest, and a multi-time second-rounder in the AMC One-Hour Pilot category of the Austin Film Festival Screenplay & Teleplay Competition. I'm always looking to continue to learn and improve my craft.
