Sold Out - Waitlist Available

Particularly Interested In:

Political and historical drama has captured me recently because it required an adept precision and understanding of character, world, and stakes. That being said, my main focus has generally been science fiction and horror. While I enjoy science fiction to mix with political drama and relevant socio-political stakes, I'll happily make a batch of popcorn and enjoy a high concept sci-fi, action, or horror.

Pitch Tips

Character is king. It's the foundation you build your entire script on, so it should be first and foremost in your pitch.
