Portland, United States

I was born in Nebraska, but grew up all over the country. My greatest super power,  is my imagination.  In my 20's I lived in Hollywood at the Fleur Dis Lis off of Hollywood Blvd. I spent my days off watching back to back movies for hours in the theaters. I love to write original characters that are quirky and out of the norm. My characters  are based on my love of travel and celebrate diversity.

I attended College in London England and Los Angeles. I graduated with a BA in Fashion Design & Merchandising. I have had over 200 jobs before I got into my career as a photo stylist for magazines and catalogs, working in the industry for 23 years in Los Angeles.

I grew up all over the country. Living in Nebraska, Iowa, Connecticut, Indiana, London England, Boston, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Washington, Portland Oregon, Manteca CA., and now back to Portland Oregon again.

Moving has allowed me to get to know many different types of people and create unique, diverse characters with heart.  I am currently working full time as a screenwriter. I work towards my dream every day. I like writing romantic comedy, dark comedy, and drama thrillers.

I have been married to my husband Greg Dang for 23 years. My last name is German/ Vietnamese, but I am English and Irish, adopted at birth.  I have a 20 year-old son living in Los Angeles, and a blind 130 pound Akita named Kenai after the Kenai Alaskan river.

I am a Oregon based writer with scrips currently on The Blacklist, and Inktip.

I was a finalist in the Lit Laughs International Comedy  Screenplay Competition Winter 2020 for my script: Kings of Cabra.

My screenplay "The Exchange Students", placed as a quarter finalist in the Portland Screenplay Awards,  Summer 2021.
