I got twenty years of game development behind me as an artist and designer, eight of which were spent in California. During that time, I took the opportunity to study Feature Film Writing at UCLA Extension and graduated in 2011. That same year I presented a short screenplay I had written to a few online competitions, winning one and placing top three in several others. None of that led to anything, obviously, but it at least meant that several people seemed to think that my writing was decent enough. Sadly, I have since slowly drifted away from writing, but I’m looking to get back into it, and I’m hoping Co//ab might just be the push that I need.
