I work in the Film and Television industry as a copywriter, where I spend my days writing everything from print taglines and trailer copy, to special shoot scripts and additional film dialogue. I've contributed to a variety of high profile campaigns, ranging from Toy Story 4, to A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, to Black Panther, and many more in between.

I have always had a passion for film and writing. I received my Bachelor's degree in screenwriting from one of the U.S.'s top film schools, Loyola Marymount University. While there, I interned as a script reader at several production companies, including Jerry Bruckheimer, Happy Madison and DreamWorks. Ever since, I have dedicated myself to learning, understanding and refining the craft of writing, and continue to do so every day in my personal and professional work.
