Where do you live (City, State, or Country)?
Sherman Oaks, CA, USA.
Your script stood out among hundreds of others. What was the inspiration for your story and why did you write a script instead of a short story or a novel?
I wanted to write a script that could easily be shot but still keep audience attention. I wrote a script because that’s how my mind works and I’ve been trained in scriptwriting.
How long did it take you to write your script...and what is your writing process? Do you outline...use index cards...white board...or just start with FADE IN?
The script took me a couple of weeks to write and finish. In my writing process, I outline the plot while writing the dialogue simultaneously.
What is your ultimate ambition as a writer?
My goal is to have my scripts shot and finished. I’m a storyteller, I need an audience.
Was your entry at The Wiki Screenplay Contest a full script or “the first ten pages”? Why did you make that choice?

What’s your all-time favorite movie or television show...and why?

What advice do you have for writers hoping to win a contest or place as a finalist as you have?
Write everyday and do it with your gut.
What else are you working on that the world needs to know about?
I’ve compiled a mischievous horror anthology containing my award winning short scripts about folks who are fated for evil--it’s called Dark Destinies.
