I have been working with scripts in one form or another for over 20 years.
I worked with produced scripts as a Script Supervisor by breaking them down for continuity purposes. I was fortunate to be involved in the Pre-production, Production and Post-Production stages of film making. During this time I also worked at a Production Company and Editing Suite.
I then moved on to Analyzing scripts through Coverages and Reading for film festivals. Having experience reading all genres while watching for formatting, structure, story and character arcs and providing constructive, workable feedback.
An instructor once said, 'if you're a reader, you're a writer'. I thought okay, why not. After writing my first script, I decided to partner up with a class mate and the rest is history. We have four scripts as collaborators and six scripts combined. After several features, we experimented with TV scripts and we both agreed that we definitely wanted to continue in that direction.
My interest in storytelling began at age ten when I started playing Dungeons & Dragons. As a player, the first thing you learn is to create and develop a character. As a Dungeon Master, you learn to develop a world for the characters to explore, a world full of conflict and intrigue, obstacles and rewards, humor and fun. It is an improvisational form of storytelling in which all of the players contribute to the story as they play the game.
As an “Air Force brat”, I grew up living in a variety of locations across the United States, and my family also lived in England for several years. This is where I discovered my favorite TV show, Doctor Who. As an adult, I was fortunate to be able to expand my world travels, visiting Germany, Holland, Okinawa, and the Philippines. My travels allowed me to meet people of many different countries, which fueled my appreciation of diverse cultures around the world.
For fun, I enjoy science, art, music, camping, and going to the beach. I love astronomy, and I try to catch as many meteor showers as I can throughout the year. I volunteer as a script reader for the Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition when I’m not writing, and I enjoy providing feedback to encourage writers to develop great stories and characters.
