Helping determined screenwriters overcome story hurdles with a customized, practical Story Plan so your next draft finally stands out from the slush pile and reaches audiences

You have this great movie idea, but something terrible is happening:

What I do differently

You want to tell a good story. But your script or ideas don’t quite deliver what you want to express. I approach your project from every angle and come up with a Story Plan that will work to make your story resonate with readers and audiences.

I help you translate your ideas into film language. I get you unstuck from your writing funk and leave you feeling inspired to develop and share your story with the world.

I point out story issues with explanations that make sense and I offer alternative ways to solve those nagging story problems.

I don’t limit the depth and breadth of my analysis to page numbers and idea quotas.

I am open to answering any further questions you may have during your writing so you don’t feel abandoned and confused at any point.

I don’t pummel you with story jargon to impress you. I care about the stories you want to tell and I support you as a writer.

I am your guide in fixing your story problems and getting your screenplay ready for the world to see

I am a screenwriter like you. My last screenplay ‘Off the Beaten Path’ was a Second Rounder at the prestigious Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition and is in the hands of potential producers right now.

Two of the films I’ve worked on as a script consultant are Francis Annan’s ‘Escape from Pretoria’ announced to star Daniel Radcliffe and Sam Neill, and Erol Mintaş’s ‘Song of My Mother’ Winner of Best Film at 2014 Sarajevo Film Festival.

A member of The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) and a Berlinale Talents Screenwriters alumna since 2009, I participated in international film festivals (Cannes and Berlin among others) as a film critic and served as a juror at national film festivals in Turkey and my local BendFilm Festival in Oregon, USA.

I was a reader for AFF and I continue to support the festival circuit as a screener and script reader. My next jury duty will be for Walla Walla Movie Crush!

I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in Film & TV Production. And I know writers become writers by writing.

I’m currently wrapping up a small town mystery. A drama I recently completed is in development to be shot in Central Oregon in 2019. Locally you can find me script writing and assistant directing for The NW Collective in Bend, Oregon.

Above all, I have a knack for this. So try me!

Why a Story Plan

I read screenplays for clients and film festivals all the time and I know writing a bad screenplay is the most common occurrence in the world.

The chances are your screenplay needs a thorough polish, if not a full-blown revamp. I know you probably know exactly what is wrong with your work, but you just can’t seem to figure a way out of the complicated machinery of storytelling.

And you need to break through that lost feeling with a guide by your side.

Why choose me as your Guide

I offer you exactly what I would want from my dream Story Magician:



A) identify the issues in detail but don’t dwell on the problems,

B) explain what’s so wrong with the identified issues without condescending you, and show you how you can overcome them,

C) take you by the hand and give you a step by step roadmap to address those issues creatively with several examples and potential pathways,

D) make you feel well-equipped, inspired, confident and eager to write the story you want to write.

If this is what you want, I might be the right guide for you. Check out what some of my clients have said about working with me below.
