First year at SCAD:
2011

As a working screenwriter by profession, and a committed and impassioned teacher by nature, the opportunity to teach undergraduate screenwriting workshops at SCAD is the pinnacle of my career, and I feel confident I can contribute in preparations of young writers.

I thoroughly enjoy and excel at the workshop process, leading students in a collaborative effort as their stories are developed and strengthened into fully functioning screenplays. This is my strongest asset.

After years of working in television where collaboration in the writers' room is key to success, I foster that kind of "coaching" in the classroom where my expertise and bringing the best out of my students merge.
