I am a screenwriter and critically acclaimed actress from Austin, Tx, now based in Los Angeles. A life in the theater blessed me with the opportunity to embody roles that were deeply layered and complex. When it came to film and television, I felt limited. Leery of playing one dimensional hookers and batshit crazies, I began writing and creating powerful female characters doing extraordinary things. I optioned a hit play premiered by my Off Broadway theater company and adapted my first feature -- a thrilling and hilarious female driven modern noir. I created the limited series Deadshot Girls based on the true stories of the outlaw women of the Old West and am co creator/writer of the Hollywood biopic Wolfe (a 1950’s Entourage). My body of work represents what I am most passionate to write about: underdogs fighting to transcend their circumstances and claim their dignity in a less than dignified world.
