Writer Statement

Zero Saved was partly written out of a need to exorcize demons from deep within after 24 years of experiencing other people's worst days. I truly believe that the general public has no idea what a paramedic does or has to deal with and film and television rarely if ever get it right. The idea was born out of a conversation I was having with fellow medics speculating about how we would rob a bank, in broad daylight and on duty.
