About J.L.

About me - I'm compelled to create, to see the bigger picture, to understand how the dominos fall within projects of any type - from screenwriting to IT projects, my goal is to produce quality work, on time, within budget, and take into account business motivators and strategies.

I'm a highly creative, multi-tasking screenwriter, business professional, and nationally published freelance writer. A graduate with distinction of UCLA's feature film writing program, with sixteen completed screenplays in my portfolio, I also freelance for the Saskatoon StarPhoenix and am working on writing and marketing screenplays.

I combine my project management expertise with my screenwriting talents to produce quality character-driven and high concept scripts in the Drama, Comedy, RomCom, and Sci Fi genres. I'm currently working with four production companies on in-house scripts and have just recently optioned A PLACE APART.
