About Me:

Film enthusiast turned hobbyist screenwriter. By day I'm a graduate student and by night a writing turtle. Most of the time caffeine is involved (my third love) which certainly helps the motivated creative process!

Feel free to message me about my screenplays or even about yours. I'm more than willing to give things a read so long as my studies don't keep me too busy - they will for some time so bear with me.
