I began as an actor and fell in love with writing. I started by writing plays for my friends to act in. But being in LA I decided to test the waters of screenwriting. I went to Writers Boot Camp for their two year screenwriting program and since then I have completed four screenplays, (one a semi-finalist for the Page Screenwriting Contest) and one TV Pilot. I turned one of my short plays into a short film this year and we got into the Festival At The Edge In Santa Monica and hope for more festival nods this year. A team I collaborated with for Women In Film decided to make a no budget film. I was the director for A Perfect Date and was so excited to have two Stage 32 members work on the movie in post. Collaboration is very exciting and now that I've been bitten by the directing bug I'd love to direct one of my own feature scripts. Keep Writing!
