About Jeffrey

Jeffrey Gold is an award-winning screenwriter, playwright, producer, and film composer.

Unique traits: Film composer. Consultant on scripts involving science, mathematics. Consultant on narrative, structure, and dialogue. Also known for lack of sleep. Apocalyptic or alien invasion dreams (sorry, not my fav dream genres). Nightmares involving long hallways in abandoned/dilapidated hospitals. Lots of running involved. Sometimes gunfire, but that is usually reserved for the WWII past life/reenactment dreams. Wake up exhausted. I miss those flying or "sex in the hayloft" dreams.
