Short Bio: Raised on I Love Lucy and Rock Hudson movies in eastern Long Island, from an early age I was interested in all things camp. After completing a Bachelor’s in Filmmaking at SUNY Purchase, a Master’s in Special Education at Brooklyn College, and radiation in the cancer treatment ward at Beth Israel, I had had it with New York City, and ran away to Arctic Alaska. Based in small villages off the road system, I worked for over a decade with children with disabilities, spent summers traveling abroad, made some short films, and in my free time, mostly just tried to keep warm. In 2018, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue an MFA in Screenwriting at UCLA, with a focus on writing for television.
Short Artist Statement:Love a fall from grace, a troubled redemption story, a “difficult” female protagonist, smart and/or outlandish comedy, queer stories, and a smattering of insult humor. Love drama with a sense of irony (see: The Good Fight), satire with a sense of heart (see: Schitt’s Creek), and genre bending with a sense of camp (See: Search Party).
