About Sarah

I'm a screenwriter and actress in the Los Angeles area.

I have a Bachelors Degree in English and Philosophy from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi and will graduate with a Masters Degree in Screenwriting from APU in the Spring of 2019.

It's been an interesting life having started my career in entertainment after winning High Times Magazine's first ever "Miss High Times Competition" back in 2007 in Negril, Jamaica. That coveted cannabis crown took me around the globe hosting and speaking at various events, smoking the finest cannabis in the world with the most interesting people on the planet, and making life-long friends, such as my first writing partner, the talented Natasha Lewin, with whom I wrote an award-winning feature length stoner girl comedy with.

I have written several feature length films, a one-hour political dramedy pilot, and a half hour sitcom pilot. I LOVE writing female-driven dark comedies with a heartfelt message, stoner girl comedies, and dramedies. As one of my writing professors once wrote, "I love reading your stuff, but would never want to be around you with a knife" since someone in my scripts are always losing a body part or getting hurt in some way.

I've also acted in several national commercials, films, music videos, a few episodes of ABC's "The Neighbors" and a show on Amazon called "The Green Room" where I play Autumn Skye- the slightly confused resident activist at a medical marijuana dispensary.
