I LIKE TO TALK WITH MY HANDS AND HAVE RETIRED THESE RED PANTS. 

     I am originally from Ohio and I've lived in LA for over a decade. I got my start in television at USA Network (Monk, Psych) and Spike TV (Blade) in scripted one hour. After reading thousands of scripts in development I took the leap to write a movie for MGM.  The writer's strike eventually killed that project, but it led me down a beautiful path where I am now working in emerging platforms with traditional experience.

My first feature film "One Too Many Mornings" was one of the first rentals ever on YouTube - this sparked my entrepreneurial spirit. I love finding new ways to tell stories - for me the key is weaving in story, creativity and engagement into formats like SnapChat, Instagram and YouTube. It's more important than ever to know your audience and what that audience expects from that particular eco-system. I am lucky enough to have insight across multiplatforms. My goals are to create compelling content that can be enjoyed on your phone, thrown on your TV for your entire family and hopefully platforms that don't exist yet.
