I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California. My father was a college basketball coach, and my mother was an elementary school teacher. The first movie I ever saw was STAR WARS, and from the time that I was about 5 years old, I’ve been fascinated by what’s possible with multimedia storytelling.

Upon graduation from Soquel High School, I attended American University’s School of Communications in Washington DC, and then went on to study at San Francisco State University’s BECA School of Radio, TV and Film.

I moved to LA in 2002. I’ve worked almost every single production job that one could possibly work on a set… and worked almost every single job in hospitality one could possibly work in a restaurant…

What I love is writing. And I’ve written several feature scripts, tv pilot scripts and manuscripts… Scripts, scripts and scripts!
