Writer Statement

I hope you enjoy my script. It is the longest script I have written to date! And it certainly was a difficult one to write. Much of what I write speaks to an audience that I adhere to myself, and to write something that was both geographically different, as well as thematically, it was a challenge. I hope to continue writing in different genres, and growing and evolving my writing to tell even greater stories in my lifetime.
