Life has taken me a lot of places... relatively recently to the world of film making. I was production designer on a feature a couple of years ago, LOVED the experience so am doing more. After production finished, I began to have scenes appear in my minds-eye, started writing them down, and have also been screenwriting since that triggering event. Who knows? My first attempt went as far as the quarterfinals in the ScreenCraft Fellowship, so I've been following this path to IDKwhere! I'm happy to be on this journey with you! Hopefully we will encourage one another, and maybe even collaborate on something down the line. Wouldn't THAT be cool?!
