I like to write dramatic screenplays, which provide a deep bond with the audience. I fell in love with film, as a child, because it provided me with an immediate connection into the broader world and other people’s personal stories. When I write I want to move people on an emotional level and take them on a journey of growth. I also enjoy a good laugh and can write comedy as well.
