I love visual storytelling. Which led to a BFA from Cooper Union, followed by two months photographing life in Belfast. Then it was back to another war zone, New York, and work at a photography agency. Skip 8½ (boring) years to me quitting my job. And it was the best decision of my life, because I wrote a screenplay that was a finalist in the Gordon Parks Independent Film Awards in Screenwriting, a finalist in the Chesterfield Writer’s Film Project Fellowship, and a quarter-finalist in the Writer’s Network Screenplay & Fiction Competition. And my next screenplay became my first movie — The End of The Beginning.
