About

I am a screenwriter, essayist and freelance journalist. Originally from Chicago, I cut my creative teeth directing original plays on stages like The Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Bailiwick Repertory, and Strawdog Ensemble. After receiving my Master of Directing for Cinema/ TV and Communication at Regent University, I moved to Los Angeles and began working at The Writers Boot Camp where I had the opportunity to develop scripts with Warner Brothers Animation and teach screenwriters professional development of their screenplays. I live in Los Angeles, write, teach creative writing at Rosemont College and coach professional screenwriters.

  1. there is always that moment…you’re feeling clever, you’re finally getting words on paper, and then I reread it and hate it…HATE it. If I was doing it the old fashioned way, it would be the crumpling it up and throwing it in the corner stage. Luckily, I have yet to throw the lap top into the corner so I edit, edit and edit some more. Nice to know I’m not alone in the trenches

    1. Yes, very nice to know we’re not alone. And I know the feeling of wanting to crumple the computer up and throw it in the fire, abandoning all hope of a writing career. What am I thinking?

  2. I completely agree! After my first post I felt like I might as well have run naked through the streets! 🙂 But look at us now, overcoming that fear! I think we could be friends! 🙂

  3. I just read your post about your father and am choked up. I lost my father 30 years ago, but I can still picture him when he died. As you say, you instinctively know that they are no longer there, the person you knew has gone elsewhere. Thank you. It was a privilege to read.
