Why Film?

I've always been interested in becoming a creator of some form of art. When I was little, I wanted to be an author. In middle school, I wanted to be a game designer. Now, I'm an aspiring screenwriter. I finally decided on film because I believe it is the happy medium of all mediums. It gives the creator as much possible control over what the audience is given without totally restricting the audience. Video games often give more choice to the player, whereas books are often too far into the mind of the author. Again, I like the happy medium.

My Aspirations

I want to become a professional screenwriter and director. While I will likely have to work smaller jobs on set, or if I'm lucky, become a staff writer on a TV show, I eventually want to sell one of my screenplays and earn the right to direct it.

What have I done so far?

I am currently working on my first feature screenplay, A Sailor's Song. On top of that, I currently have three short films ideas that I am working on developing into short screenplays. I have also secured two internships, one at UCSB's Pollock THeater and one at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
