Wausau, United States

Greetings from Wausau, Wisconsin! I’m Andrea, a former proofreader, property manager and PTO president. A native Iowan, my journey into screenwriting commenced when I moved from Eastern Iowa to snowy North Central Wisconsin, which allowed me to finally focus on writing. It’s been both an exciting and soul-crushing journey! 

I’m drawn to character-driven stories with heart that portray complicated family dynamics. Grounded Comedies, Romantic Comedies, Dramas and Dramedies are the genres I find most appealing.

A big believer in the art of collaboration, my hope is that a script of mine will one day connect with a creative in the industry who has the vision and power to bring it to life. Organized and detail-oriented with a flexible schedule, I’m “free to fly” and would welcome the opportunity to connect with others to help make it happen.

I look forward to connecting with other Script Revolution members and am very open to feedback/constructive criticism pertaining to my scripts. In fact, I welcome it since I'm regularly polishing them as inspiration strikes!  I’ve been described as a person who can talk to anyone. Really! Don’t be shy…
