As Senior Writer, my work will center around the studio's narrative needs-- from world-building, character development and V/O to innovative trans-media storytelling opportunities.

Fresh from leaving a career in banking, I was accepted into the Warner Bros. Writers workshop. From there, I was staffed on a variety of shows-- from network sitcoms to HBO limited series. Some were seen by millions, others by just us cast and crew. Among them were the Disney Channel's "That So Raven," the WB's "The Mayor" and "Young Person's Guide to Becoming a Rock Star" and HBO's first iteration of "The Comeback." Shortly after that came the WGA strike of 2007-2008 and my transition into video game writing.
