Hi, my name is Marjolein Smit.
(aka Mack, because my name is hard to pronounce)
After I graduated from the Amsterdam Theater Academy ( ATA),
as an actor and theatre maker, I decided writing was the way to go for me.
I started writing a movie script. I enjoyed that so much that it all just snow balled from there. Even though I am Dutch I prefer to write in English. It feels like this language has more options available to me when it comes to expressing myself. Another advantage to writing in English is that I have a bigger market available to me when it comes to selling my screenplays. Humor and cockiness are two things that you will always find in my writing. I am a sucker for underdogs winning and happy endings so it goes without saying that those ingredients usualy find their way into my screenplay souffle's too.
Unique traits: I speak Dutch , English , German and some Portuguese (Brazil). I am 6 foot 1.
