I'm a 2014 graduate of the UCLA Feature Film Certificate Screenwritting Program. Overall, I've completed 4 feature-length screenplays, one of which (Family, Adventure, Drama) won 2nd at the Phoenix Film Festival, was a finalist at Catalina Film Festival as well as the Beverly Hills Film Festival. I have written one short screenplay (a paranormal thriller) that placed 3rd. My genres are a bit eclectic as I enjoy the challenge of variety; Family-Adventure-Drama, Action-Romantic-Comedy, Sci-fi, Zombie-Thriller and the Ghost-Paranormal-Thriller. My goal is to someday see one of my screenplays go into production and one day up in lights on the big screen!
Although I have only been screenwriting the past several years, I have been creative all my life. From being brought into this world by a fashion illustrator/artist mom and a photographer-advertising manager dad, I've always been surrounded by creativity. Over the past decade, I have designed and developed walk-thru Halloween mazes each year that include constructing a miniature model of the project and getting city approval. I paint business and storefront windows during the holidays and have painted many large-scale murals, but my love is writing and am pursuing this challenging medium with whole-hearted passion.
