Background

Born in Ohio, raised in Indiana, California livin’. There's been an infinite number of things to capture with a lens and a pen. I was given my first camera around the age of eleven and filmed foolish things with my neighbors. That followed me into high school, where I started crafting scripts and uploading more outlined content. I've come a long way from fake-stabbing my friends with sticks and making lightning from flashlights, and I'm thrilled to unearth where else it can take me. My writing interests are primarily in screenwriting and poetry, although I never turn down a moment to write and read flash fiction and creative nonfiction.

I graduated high school with academic honors and began college immediately afterwards, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in 3 years. Because my passion for filmmaking and writing is deeply instilled within me, I felt motivated to push myself academically. Because of this, I was a graduate student at both Ball State University and Southern New Hampshire at the same time and completed two different master’s degree programs simultaneously. My eagerness to better myself knows no bounds, which is something I pride myself in and know that I learned such adept time management and productivity skills from my mother. By the time I graduated with both master’s degrees, I had written 3 full-length feature screenplays and a number of other short scripts. I will continue writing and submitting my scripts to festivals for as long as I may live, and I hope to one day earn a PhD in English or film studies.
