Hey, I’m



Screenwriter / Filmmaker/ Voice Over Artist 

I'm a screenwriter, filmmaker, and voice over artist who is always looking for the next artistic adventure! 


Check out my award-winning comedy/horror short film, Lunch Ladies, now on Prime Video, Kanopy, Troma Now! and more.  Lunch Ladies, has been in over one-hundred festivals all over the world - including prestigious Clermont-Ferrand - has won forty-two awards and garnered over eighty positive reviews.  I also developed an extensive social media platform for the film and a website with over two hundred blogs - so head over to my Lunch Ladies website for more info!   


In addition, my screenplay – Land Of Milk And Honeyis in pre-production to be directed by Gisberg Bermudez and produced by Elizabeth Avellan and Rana Joy Glickman.  My other piece, Stella By Starlight – has been optioned by Norman Stephens Films and Beverly Nero Productions and I wrote a book, "I Made A Short Film WTF Do I Do With It (a guide to film festivals, promotion, and surviving the ride)," now available at Barnes & Noble, AmazonBooks A Million, and International Screenwriting Association.


I have a BA in theatre from Indiana University and trained at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy.  I am a long-standing member of Twin Bridges Writing Salon, love a good thrift shop and reside in Los Angeles with all the other wonderful weirdos.
