Writer Statement

My literary favourite is G.B Shaw.
At age 15 in High School English class, I was greatly influenced by his play
MRS WARREN'S PROFESSION, not so much for the salacious subject matter he made sociable to discuss, but because he taught me to understand the other side of judicious morality.

Shaw’s principles of morality become relevant to a new generation engaging elements of characters and young leads they can relate to.
I am mindful to do justice to Shaw's elevated views of morality and the depiction of common decency in those we see as below us and the flaws of those we see as above us.

I offer a unique talent for compelling visuals and controversial dialogue driven in the context of mainstream projects featuring light comedy and music in TV and Film.

I've worked in TV production and I pride myself on successful collaborations to established franchises as well as
writing to targeted audiences, casting and production budgets

I'm a very centered, well adjusted earthy person
-no drugs no drama no demons
but driven!
with an insanely wild imagination, solid work ethic and smart business sense
