The Writer: Michael Vuksanic

O kay listen before you start jumping the gun, I get it, I'm young. Which automatically means you won't take me as seriously as the other thousands of people on here. However, you really shouldn't do that, and I'm gonna tell you why. I don't believe in corny bios that stroke one's ego, so I'll make my own twist on them. As you know, I'm Michael, eighteen years old, from New Jersey. Now that the formalities are over, we can get down to business. I've written three scripts so far since I started writing in 2018, and I'm currently working on my fourth. One of which is currently in a Developmental Evaluation, so that's pretty exciting. I have no accolades to date. No contests won, no special... Go to bio
