I have been writing for a few years now. I have roughly ten completed scripts (2 pilots & 8 features). One of my scripts, NOMADS, has been a finalists in scriptapalooza (top 1% of roughly 4,000 scripts), as well as placing in the top 10% of the 2013 Big Break Contest and top 10% of the 2013 Nicholl Fellowship. Another script of mine, VOLTAGE, placed in the top 5% of the 2013 Nicholl Fellowship.
I am not defined by a single genre, but there are genres I enjoy more than others. That being said, I enjoy challenging myself and trying out new and interesting opportunities. For me, it's about the characters and the story, not the genre.
Why am I on Stage 32? To meet other people that are trying to work their way through the industry, as well as meeting people that may be willing to bounce ideas off each other and review each others writing in addition to possibly meeting people that are looking for a solid writer to work on a project.
Although I live in Northern Cal, I head down to Southern Cal on a fairly regular basis just to touch base with friends and contacts I have made.
So, if anyone is looking to connect with a writer, look no further.
