About Pattana

I was born in the Buddhist country: Thailand. I came to the US. for my MBA after graduating from a top university in Bangkok. I had a Thai background that drove me to be quite a snob, who was possessed by an inferiority complex. Until a perfect life fell apart. Having been an atheist for a long time, I fell hard. I became interested in Buddhism only when that crisis struck.

Grateful to my Buddhist root, I’m now cured from the neurosis. I’ve studied Buddhist texts and practiced meditation for almost ten years. Now I’m a very simple woman.

The fact that I am an Asian American makes me qualified to craft this very complex screenplay that talks about the core of Buddhist philosophy that can make your head spin. I finally received some award and sweet recognitions for my script.

I hope you'll dare to upload the screenplay, read it and perhaps find it romantic, entertaining and inspiring.
