Manhattan Beach, CA
I love to create funny, compelling and insightful ideas for people, places and things. I write commercials, webisodes, virals, short films, feature films, episodic and reality based tv. I’ve created blogs, brands and books. I also direct commercials, music videos and take photos in my spare time.
My work has been featured in Creativity, Shoot, Adweek, Advertising Age, Communication Arts, Print, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Filter, Open Culture and Salon. It has also been awarded in the Beldings, the One Show, Seattle Show, and the Minneapolis Show. My latest feature length script – Artimus Pyle, was selected as a finalist for the 2015 Sundance Writers Lab and the 2015 Blacklist/Cassian Elwes Writers Foundation.
