I create surreal, carefully constructed stories that dissect love, morality, oppression, identity crises, alienation, and stagnation by catapulting characters into absurd, almost comically juxtaposed worlds where they must use self-examination as a tool for escape and redemption. 

Background:

I guess it all began with me hanging out of the back of a moving van as I threw raw meat to an angry grizzly bear, hoping the cameraman could get the perfect shot. Yeah, I started in production, reality television to be exact. But, it wasn’t all bad, I got to party with rock stars, shoot guns off with bikini girls in the mountains and even got to stand in as a prostitute monkey, while the real monkey sat in her air-conditioned trailer, watching tv. 

After years of that, I decided to move back into development, which was a lot tamer, but exciting in other ways. I got to be creative! They liked my ideas! And I was reading tons of scripts and giving coverage. 

But, no matter what my preoccupations, I was writing. At night, on the weekends, in my car on a break… I wrote. I spent hours, days, years honing my craft in the hopes of producing something different, something that would make people think (and maybe even give them a chuckle). 

Since then, I’ve written numerous features, shorts, and pilots, some of which have been produced, optioned, and/or placed in prestigious contests. 

Seeking representation and insightful producers and directors who aren't afraid of the bizarre.
