I am your guide in fixing your story problems and getting your screenplay reader ready

I am a screenwriter. My TV Pilot ‘Blue River’ was a Quarterfinalist at Slamdance Film Festival, a Second Rounder for The Orchard Project Episodic Lab and has since been picked up by Art & Essai, a production company in Montreal, Canada. One of my feature-length screenplays ‘Off the Beaten Path’ was a Second Rounder at Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition.

Two of the films I’ve worked on as a script consultant are Francis Annan’s Escape from Pretoria starring Daniel Radcliffe, 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 (Oregon, USA).

I’m honored to be supporting the festival circuit as an Associate Programmer for the Narrative Features Program at BendFilm Festival.

I love studying film! I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in Film & TV Production from UK Universities.

2020 is my year of rewrites. I’m rewriting and endlessly tweaking four of my feature-length screenplays and an episodic TV project, in addition to researching for a new script.

When not screenwriting and festival programming, you can find me script writing and video producing for The NW Collective in Bend, Oregon, and taking care of my two sons alongside a husband whose availability for childcare and cooking is what makes all of the above possible.

In any case, I have a knack for this. So try me!
