ABOUT

All my life, I dreamt of being a famous musician...

That didn't happen.

Later, I co-wrote the script for a 10 issue comic mini-series... 

It didn't get picked up.

 

But through that experience, I found screenwriting.

 

Soon after, I moved to Los Angeles to study filmmaking.

And I did.

 

If you're interested in collaborating, I'm always looking for talented folks to work with. HMU.

I LOVE WRITING. In a group or on my own, it's my favorite thing to do. Usually, you can find me in my basement office, sitting cozily in my office chair, Markus, typing away with a cat sleeping on my feet
