About Susan

"Brainstorming is my Passion". I started my career as an Art Director and Writer working in every large advertising agency in New York. It was. in the 80's and 90's and was a great time to be in the business. Clients took chances and had all the money in the world y to shoot TV campaigns all over the world.

I've always loved the conceptual thinking that goes into an advertising campaign. I love that moment when the the hair on your arms go up; when you realize that you've hit a high concept idea.

I use that same process in my screenwriting. Nothing beats a high concept idea and the knowledge that you hit on something unique, something so new; that you just know - no one else thought of it. (I always check Google!

Brainstorming is the most important part of the script process.They say nothing is new. I don't believe it. That's what drives me. And you can't explain this to someone that isn't in the business. It's part of your brain function.

Unique traits: I'm funny and sarcastIc. I don't stop thinking and I don't give up.
