I write screenplays.
I write screenplays about folks who don't garner a lot of news and who live in places most would never want to call home. My dramas are sometimes referred to as "character-driven" and are written with low budgets in mind.
I am also a SAG-AFTRA actress, a photographer, a filmmaker and I dabble* as a stand-up comic. Those are some of the things I do -- not necessarily who I am. As I have projects in the works, I will let you know about them here. Or possibly HERE.
My screenplay Orfano di Padre was a semi-finalist in the Austin Film Festival and in the Bluecat Screenwriting Contest. I also placed in several other contests including Creative Screenwriting’s Screenplay Contest, Act One, and placed in the top 15% of The Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting.
I’m a native Montana lady, the mother of five incredible growing people, and a wife to my oh-so-blessed husband. The power in the household belongs to our multitude of cats and our two rescued Australian Shepherd mutts. Oh yeah -- and the chickens. They count, too.
Trained as an old-school journalist, I respect life and the stories and lives of other humans. I feel bias is an enemy to stimulating discussion and personal growth. My interests and ideas are not limited by my sex, age, or past.
*I would like to do more than "dabble," but there is gawd-damned pandemic going on. Oy, the glut of covid-19 jokes... when will it end? Fun as ZOOM drinking parties have been, Corona isn't funny, but I still like the beer.
