About

I am an independent writer with a prior background in film and video production. While in the industry, I was an art department coordinator at Stu Segall Productions in San Diego, CA where I had the opportunity to work on an episodic TV series for the Sci Fi Channel called "The Chronicle" and also worked on MOWs for VH1 and The Disney Channel. During this period, I also joined the San Diego crew of "The Antwone Fisher Story" produced by Fox Searchlight Pictures and directed by Denzel Washington. In addition to my film work, I am an experienced video production coordinator.

Presently I am developing a children's adventure book series for ages 8-12, which I eventually plan to adapt into a screenplay. I'm still very much a lover of film and enjoying being connected to the local film community and offering my support.
