MORE ABOUT ME:
I enjoy writing smart, funny, deeply probing, entertaining stories that make audiences laugh and think. I feel every story can open a conversation with the wider world, as we collectively dive into complex topics.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON:
When COVID-19 closed the world, theaters and the film industry, I adapted what was to be my second feature film, RACCOON, into a novel. That manuscript is now the first of a darkly comic crime trilogy.
