I originally started writing novels – “See Jack Die”, “How my Gay Uncle f’ed up Christmas”, “Chasing Darkness”, and a bunch of other mostly random titles. I moved out to Los Angeles in 2012 to learn how to write for television. I mentored with a CBS executive, a Netflix executive, and the head writer for the hit series Dexter. In addition to learning how to write, I've learned how to exist in a writers room, be respectful of ideas that might be contrary to my own, understand the value of a good beat sheet, and the nuances of story. I spent many years reading every script that the networks were buying to get a feel for the quality and diversity that projects need to become a commodity. I would say that my strengths are in the one-hour television, Single cam - thriller and suspense; and in the 1/2 hour, rather edgy comedy space.
