I’m a recent graduate from the University of Georgia with a degree in Entertainment and Media Studies as well as certificates in New Media and Interdisciplinary Writing. My goal is to be a television staff writer and eventually a showrunner, particularly for dramatic SFF series.

Writing Journey

I was insecure for a long time about being a writer. It was something I wanted for as long as I could remember, but it took me until my senior year of high school to start writing seriously.

To me, I was starting almost egregiously late. To make up for it, I wrote with a vengeance. What I lacked in years of experience I made up for with sheer volume, writing hundreds of thousands of words of prose in that first year alone, never mind since. Storytelling was my calling, and I was determined to finally answer it.

In college, I focused on screenwriting. Getting into it was both easier and harder than expected; the rules of screenwriting and the software needed were exceptionally straightforward and rigid, but transferring prose writing to script writing was not. In scripts, I could rely only on what was visible and not on characters’ introspection. Still, my background in prose made my scripts stronger, and learning screenwriting gave my prose a visuality I had never before been able to accomplish.

Now, I’ve written hundreds of thousands of words of prose, several short stories, a handful of novel drafts, and worked on dozens of scripts. A handful of my scripts are currently in production, including one I also directed and produced, and the web series I created is currently in the editing process. It’s been an amazing process, from prose to scripts to finished films, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
