Arlington, United States

Dave Schroeder is a husband, a father of three boys, a former lawyer, and an armchair historian. Currently in his third decade as an expatriate diplomat, he tries to connect the dots between his small-town origins and a surreal world.

His passion is writing. As an English literature major, a lawyer tasked with persuading judges on diverse and complex issues, and a diplomat charged with sensitive reporting and influencing national security policy, Dave’s attention to the craft of writing has grown steadily.

He first tried his hand at screenwriting in 2021 and fell in love with the form. He has since written five features and two TV pilots – most of which are dark comedies exploring the absurdities of our modern society with a bemused, affectionate, yet exasperated detachment toward the land of his birth.
