Sundae's Bio

In brief:

I’m an award-winning American screenwriter living in London whose first major gig was being hired by Director Garry Marshall to re-write scenes and dialogue on-set for Pretty Woman (976-BABE, that was me!). Since then, I’ve written numerous shorts, TV pilots and feature specs. I’ve been a Finalist in over 30 major festivals and competitions including Page Awards, Austin Film Fest and Sundance, and I was recently selected by producer Robert Jones (Usual Suspects, etc) as the winner of the Script Delegate Program at the International Screenwriters Festival UK.

I was hired in March for a feature assignment for an action-drama, just optioned one of my comedy specs to Talking Lens, a UK Production company, and previously optioned feature material to Brillstein-Grey. I also have 7 shorts sold or optioned, all being produced this year alone in the US, UK and Canada. One, a current Sundance Sloan Finalist comedy script I wrote about the Russians version of the Moon landing, is being produced this fall by a multi-award winning director, who's latest film is currently a finalist in an Academy Award recognized festival.

I’ve recently completed three new available feature specs, plus I also have a large slate of other exciting new feature projects in development. I'm a US and Uk citizen, and am represented by LA Studio Attorney Marisa Sommerville, but am actively seeking a manager or agent who can help take my work to the next level.
