Screenwriting

Nothing But The Truth ~ feature script adapted from the young adult fiction novel by Avi. Note: this script is a WRITING SAMPLE ONLY.

The Religion of Women ~ original spec feature touches upon the parallels of materialism and morality. How far is too far?  The script is entertaining while still tackling serious issues.

Beene ~ comedy short script adapted from the short story “You Know How to Spell Elijah” by Dave Eggers. While this is an adaptation, everything in the story is original excluding the concept of misspelling “Elijah.” The characters, story, locations, and dialog are all my original work.

Blogging

  The Hodge-Podge Gallery has been my personal blog for the last three years.  I tackle a variety of topics– reviews for films/TV/books, recipes, gaming, music, fashion, family, life in LA, and reflections— with humor. Even when I’m sharing a recipe or recommending my favorite bath product, there’s always a story to tell.  This blog is a great example of my voice and humor.

Guest Bloggery: I wrote a piece about Why I Blog for the lifestyle blog A Little Slice of Special.
