I strive to be your guide to fix story problems and get your screenplay reader ready

I am a screenwriter, film festival programmer and script consultant.

Happy to announce:

My co-written feature-length script, ‘On the Water Surface’ is currently in production, my TV Pilot ‘Blue River’ has been picked up by Art & Essai in Montreal, Canada and entered Netflix-BANFF Media Festival and MIDPOINT‘s Pitch Programs.

A Berlinale Talents Screenwriters alumna and an ex-film critic, I participated in international film festivals as a film critic and served as a juror.

Currently, I’m thoroughly enjoying my position as head of festival programming at the Academy-qualifying BendFilm Festival in Oregon, USA–recently named “One of the Coolest Festivals in the World”.

I have recently published a book on the process and perils of screenwriting:
Adventures in Screenwriting: How One Writer Navigates the Dire Straits.

When not writing and programming, you can find me–semi-successfully–mothering my two sons alongside a husband whose availability for childcare and cooking is what makes all of the above possible.
