Bio

Hello there! I'm an entertainment industry professional in Hollywood, aka I produce TV and film. I work heavily with screenwriters in getting their scripts up to shape as either staffing samples or to potentially sell in the marketplace. I love consuming movies and tv shows, and therefore I do my best to make what I myself would want to watch. I can help both aspiring writers, and producers/executives begin to forge their paths in the industry. I'm very into film photography, playing the piano, running, bouldering, and trying the spiciest Thai or Szechuan food in LA that really makes you sweat. I love to read and help curate my friend's closets, whether they want me to or not. I make a mean sesame noodles and mapo tofu dish.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

TV Pilots and Film Scripts: From A to Z

Take either your tv pilot or film script from outline, to polished final draft! We'll take the industry route of developing your script from its beginnings as a beat sheet/outline, through to multiple drafts until we hit a polished version that shows you the ropes of the Hollywood development process.

Teaching experience

I have taught script writing as well as creative writing courses, and have mentored many students and other up and coming folks in the industry.
