Studied neuroscience and bio-psychology, which place an importance on chemical reactions in the brain, which in turn cause emotion and behavior. Through the chemical components which make up neurotransmitters, individuals can learn the spectrum of human interaction and common drives for basic physiological needs. Screenplays focus on the psychosis of characters and how their actions affect the behavior and thought-processes of others, which will in turn affect themselves. Interested in criminal behavior, and understanding the reasoning behind initial deviant behavior and reoffenders. Scripts include an emphasis in horror and thrillers due to the extreme range in traumatic events for characters to react, and the susceptibility for full character arcs.
