I’m an award winning screenwriter and director, which is pretty amazing because I didn’t grow up thinking that was possible.
My first feature as writer/director, OBSELIDIA, premiered in Dramatic Competition at Sundance, where it won two awards. It was later nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, including one for best screenplay.
My second film, BLEEDING HEART, a drama starring Jessica Biel and Zosia Mamet, premiered at Tribeca, and is widely available on Amazon Prime and Hulu. My most recent feature, OF DUST AND BONES, is currently in festivals.
I started my career in film as a screenwriter (before that I was a philosophy student and a yoga teacher), and I’ve written numerous commissioned and optioned screenplays, including two with renowned director John McTiernan (director of Die Hard and The Hunt for Red October).
Now I live for sharing my knowledge to empower and inspire other screenwriters and filmmakers. I freaking love helping others break through their obstacles and achieve their dreams.
I want you to know: whatever you dream of IS possible.
If you found me and you’re reading this, it’s for a reason.
It’s your time.
