I'm a writer and storyteller who's been running a boutique branding agency in San Francisco for the past 15 years. While not a screenwriter by training, I did spend my early career in the industry—working in development for a small indie with Academy Award winning credits. The scripts posted here are basically what I did instead of baking sourdough bread during COVID. And I'm seeking as much honest critical feedback and as many notes as I can possible handle!

Think: "The Player" meets "The Big Lebowski" (with a little bit of "The Afterparty" and "The Maltese Falcon" tossed in for good measure).
