I've been in LA for 11 years now. I pretty much love it here. I'm originally from NY and have the accent to prove it. I moved out here to pursue screenwriting. For a day job I worked at E! in their master control department. Unfortunately this meant I was forced to watch every single episode of the Kardashians. It's the main reason I'm glad to be done with that gig.
Focus changes in life. Over the last few years I've been concentrating less on screenwriting and more on writing personal comedic essays. I've performed them at storytelling shows across LA and NY and a piece of mine was recently published in a collection. I've also written about pop culture and film for various blogs and media outlets. I co-host a weekly pop culture comedy podcast for the Westcast Network. For Afterbuzz TV I hosted recap shows for Orphan Black, Masters of Sex and an Agents of Shield show for Collider.
Writing. But I'm also very good at working with writers and helping them develop projects. I used to do this for a living and am thinking of getting back into it.

5. Telling stories
Overthinking this profile.
At the movies seeing whatever might have came out, be it a huge blockbuster or an arty indie.
Looking for some sort of “adventure” that will give me another great story to perform on stage.
If you're someone with a story to tell.
If you’re someone who thinks Annie Hall is a perfect film.
If you’re someone who believes in and is passionate about something...anything.
