Class Experience

Students will learn the fundamentals of screenwriting and story plot points based on the Hero's Journey. 
Learn from an optioned screenwriter!  About ten years ago, I discovered screenwriting and what started as a hobby quickly turned into a dedicated pursuit to learn everything I could on scriptwriting.  Besides reading nearly every book on the subject, I completed UCLA's Screenwriting Professional Program and two subsequent mentorships with two established screenwriters. I'm currently shopping three scripts and have written and directed two short films. I have a story optioned and is currently in development; I have also placed or advanced in several script competitions including the highly regarded Nicholl's Fellowship, Stowe Story Lab, Scriptapalooza and Nashville Film Festival. Additionally, my Master's Degree in Psychology also uniquely allows me to mentor students to use their own perspective and intuition to create a unique distinctive voice.  To learn more visit
