Writer Statement

I've long admired the work of the Cohen brothers. Their screenplays often contain long scenes that bring an audience deep into a character’s inner world and struggles. In both my comedies and dramas I also write with longer scenes to help audiences feel the impact of small choices. Once we are invested in a scene, even subtle actions, (a glance, a nod) can create devastating or hilarious results.
