About Andrea

Greetings from a native Iowan living in Wausau, Wisconsin! My screenwriting adventure commenced after I moved to snowy North Central Wisconsin. The isolation and beautiful backdrop inspired me to pen a story that had ruminated inside me for over a decade, which stoked my creative spirit. It’s been an exciting journey!

I write character-driven stories with heart that portray complicated family dynamics—mostly drama and grounded comedy. My (somewhat exasperated) mother once asked me, "Whatever happened to movies like 'Steel Magnolias'?" Hmm... good question!

Check out my loglines. If you're a member of Script Revolution or NetworkISA, I have the following scripts posted on those platforms, along with a full synopsis and character breakdown for each script. My scripts can also be found on Coverfly.

• "Parallel Proposals" — a fun comedy/dramedy feature set in Chicago, IL and a Stage 32 "Double Recommend"

• "Team Emma" — an emotional drama feature set in Madison, WI

• "Echoes of Broken Promises" — a drama short set in Minneapolis, MN

All of my scripts have Midwest flavor, but locations are flexible. If you're interested in one of them but it needs a few tweaks to suit your needs, I'm open to that. Let's talk! I'm also completely open to feedback/constructive criticism. In fact, I welcome it since I'm regularly polishing my scripts as inspiration strikes. Try me!

A big believer in the art of collaboration, my hope is that a script of mine will one day connect with a creative in the industry who has the vision and power to bring it to life. Organized and detail-oriented with a flexible schedule, I’m “free to fly” and would welcome the opportunity to connect with others to help make it happen. I love to travel!

A team player and always up for an adventure, if anyone needs an extra hand when filming in my general vicinity (or possibly in Eastern Iowa, where I have family), reach out to me. The idea of volunteering on a film set to help another creative with their vision is quite intriguing! Did I mention I'll work for M&M's?

I look forward to connecting with other Stage 32 members! A Communication Studies graduate of The University of Iowa, I’ve been described as a person who can talk to anyone. Really! Don’t be shy…
