About this submission

I graduated with a BA in theatre arts from Sonoma State University with an emphasis in acting. I was a stage actress for 15 years then transitioned over to Hollywood with 15 films and television roles credited. I have produced several short films, an episodic, 2 PSA’s and one feature. Received a Silver Telly Award for one of the PSA’s produced 2 years ago for Women in Film. I started writing five years ago to give myself access to more roles that I wanted to play and fell in love with creating. The two short films I have written with my co-creator, Diq Diamond, A Home Called Hunger and The Bunker, were produced. And I was nominated for Best writer at the Idyllwild Film Festival in 2017 for The Bunker.

Currently, I have one feature finished and on its third draft, The Legend of Milky, a female based western. I currently am a student of the UCLA screenwriting program where I am working on a biopic script about my grandmother and her involvement with Al Capone. I have a screenplay I am writing with my co-creator, Diq Diamond, in hopes to film at a cabin we have been gifted with for two weeks this summer. I have several short films written in first draft format and 2 other features that are about half way complete. I am hoping to gain some knowledge through this Sundance program and receive the valuable feedback I am in need of to move my scripts forward.
