Writer

Trying to make sense of a surreal world.

I’m a screenwriter with a feature script optioned, two short films produced, and essays and short stories published.

My past career in social work enhances my insights into fully realized characters, and adds layered depth to the complexities of character relationships.

Through social work I learned that stories drive us, they fuel our meaning-making machinery. The stories that we believe, whether we share them or not, reflect our attempt to understand ourselves in this world.

 

I worked on set as an actor, producer, extras coordinator, and production assistant, until I realized that nothing beats laying down the tracks of a story.

It is a delicious thing to write, to be no longer yourself

but to move in an entire universe of your own creating.” 

Gustave Flaubert
