I consider myself a storyteller at heart.  After graduating with honors from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film and Digital Media Production and a minor in Literature, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in filmmaking and screenwriting.  Within my first year in LA I co-created the concept for an original series, wrote the pilot, acquired a Literary Manager and pitched to major networks and production companies, including Showtime, HBO, FX and Cinemax.  Simultaneously, I was working as a Production Assistant on studio movies for Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Studios.
