Movie and music MacGuffin;
I'm too busty to dance and too flat to sing so I write screenplays and poetry.
My literary favorite is G.B Shaw.
In High School English class, I was greatly influenced by his play MRS WARREN'S PROFESSION,
not so much for the salacious subject matter of prostitution he made sociable to discuss,
but because he taught me to understand another side of judicious morality.
With TRAMPS LIKE US, I am mindful to do justice to Shaw's elevated views of morality and
to portray the common decency in those we see as below us
versus the elitist abuses 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.
My work is highly praised by industry pros and I've worked in TV production
My poetry has been published in the USA and I'm the invited headliner at readings.
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
with an insanely wild imagination, solid work ethic and smart business sense.
