I'm an Australian whose scripts have placed in or won various competitions: I was a quarter-finalist in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Nicholl Fellowships for three scripts and a semi-finalist in the same for one. I was also a semi-finalist in Paramount's Chesterfield Writer's Project and finalist in Final Draft's Big Break competition; while at graduate school for film production, I received a writing grant and optioned the script it was based on. In the last few years, I've optioned a couple of scripts and been hired to do several rewrites. I'm represented by Meyer Management in Los Angeles, California.
