Born in rural North Carolina, I attended Woodberry Forest School, an all male boarding school in Virginia, for high school. While there I got my first taste of drama in the musical "Grease" and for some reason studied Japanese, a language I continued to practice in my travels to Japan and in classes at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While there I studied improv at DSi before graduating with a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in Creative Writing.
Since discovering a passion for film and TV late in my college career, I have worked in various facets of the industry - as a script reader in New York; as a P.A., researcher, magazine editor, 2nd A.D., producer, writer, director and performer in Los Angeles - both paid and for free. I am constantly collaborating with others, writing on my own, and performing improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade and iO West Theater to learn to better harness my creativity.
Through my creative journey, I have developed a set of unique skills that I have found help me to come up with imaginative and innovative solutions to any problem I might face in my writing and life.
