As an art director for both marketing agencies and publications I have had a creative mix of visual as well as copywriting exposure to vividly convey many types of products, events and services. This experience led me to screenwriting, a longtime passion, which I have forged recent success and recognition in Page International and Austin Film Festival contest entries. I have completed several feature and pilot projects in the drama genre in which I have strong interest and I hope to fully shift my focus to screenwriting in the foreseeable future.
