The most beautiful moment of pure humanity; when one finds joy through one’s heartbreak, when there is laughter through the tears.

 

I always loved writing, even as a child, so when I began playing around with amateur short films, it was a short step for me to discover a passion for screenwriting.

I enjoy working with characters and situations that are relatable, as I believe we all share a common desire for acceptance, love and meaning.

I believe in hope.

Hope is important because dark days are universal. We all have them. I won’t belittle the human experience by pretending everything is always wonderful. But I do believe if there is a glimmer of a chance of that ‘wonder’ is there to be discovered, then isn’t it worth hanging on for one more day, taking one more step?

I love when a movie truly touches you. When you cry with Juno. When you laugh and cheer for the family in Little Miss Sunshine.

Yes. I want to tell a good story. But more than that. I want to touch people’s hearts, touch their lives.
