“I have loved writing for as long as I can remember. When I turned my attention to screenwriting, I knew I didn’t want to write a lucky first masterpiece, I wanted to know and love this craft as best I could, inside and out. I hope I never quench my thirst for growing, learning, and mastering this art of story. I desire to always be seeking new and better ways to create vibrant and engaging screenplays.”
