About Kristy

I'm an award-winning screenwriter who spent 10 years developing short, web, and branded content for studios like Netflix, HBO, Disney, and Lionsgate (to name a few). I'm into drama, hints of magical realism and stories centering women.

I won Hollyshorts 2019 for my short MEADOW VALLEY DOLLHOUSE COMPETITION and have made semis/finals at Screencraft, WeScreenplay and others for my pilot, JOHANNA.
