As a writer, I'm interested in telling stories about regional America, and folks who live paycheck to paycheck, in those small towns in between big cities. I adore unreliable protagonists and really distinctive and juicy characters, whether that be in a bold comedy, or a crime drama. I'm inspired by the dreamers and underdogs in the world.
My years working toward my MFA at Columbia University in Film were a stepping stone in my life as a storyteller. And the last few years of teaching Screenwriting, and experiences in retreats, fellowships, and the 2019 Writers Lab have kept my writing fresh and exciting--to write, and also hopefully--to read. I'm represented by Amy Wagner at A3 Artists, and I'm excited to have a few feature projects currently optioned, and am developing a drama pilot for Freeform.
