Joined 9 years ago from Boynton Beach, FL
I was born and raised in beautiful Bonita Springs, Florida. My very first full-time job in high school was at the local movie theater which seemed appropriate because movies were my life. I loved watching them, ALL of them and had a growing interest in how they were made.
In 2003, I moved to Orlando to attend Full Sail University where I enrolled in the Film & Video Production program. The classes and intense labs were long and held at all times of the day and night. After being involved in multiple film and digital projects during my time in school, I graduated in 2004 and I returned to my hometown area. Within a month I was employed at WINK-TV, the CBS affiliate in Fort Myers in the production department.
Although I value everything I have learned in the TV News business, my true passion is writing. I have written dozens of screenplays along with some short stories. Recently I have started work on my first novel, a fiction story that I have been developing for 15 years. It has been a challenge, but it has been an incredible experience to delve inside characters minds that have been inside of my own head for so long. It has been refreshing to say the least and a wonderful distraction from the raw and increasingly negative news content.
For the past year I have been working for the not-for-profit Everglades Wonder Gardens in my hometown. It is a botanical jungle featuring rescued birds & reptiles. I have been designing signage for the wildlife and botanicals throughout the park along with controlling and writing all social media content. I have also written and designed all newsletters, webpages, press releases and applied for grants. I recently moved across the state, but have continued all of my work for the "EWG".
Screenplays will always hold a special place in my creative heart, but over time I hope to become a full time fiction author.
