I was born and raised in Chicago, where I learned how to write and direct for the stage. Many of my jobs were with The Second City comedy cabaret, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and other local theaters. I also wrote and won awards for my fiction, magazine articles, poetry, and journalism. In 1991, I became the marketing director for the largest producer of improvisation and family entertainment in the Midwest, where I wrote all promotional copy, as well as the newsletter, and press releases. After holding that position for six years I moved to Los Angeles where I made my living selling feature film screenplays and television scripts. I also have a BFA in film, and music, as well as graduate credits in Creative Writing, World History, and Business. I look forward to writing for you through Elance.
