I am a Festival Award-Winning Screenwriter whose main game is comedy. I'm dabbling in open mics, but my main passion and drive in life is writing! I love to create stories and characters and get a chance to get people interested in a tale and make them laugh along the way. I'm also the Co-Host of The Ranting and Raving Podcast, which is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Podbean, and many other podcast sites and apps!
