Overview

Have you ever had a great idea that you "just needed to put into words?" Well I'm the one who can put it into words.

I attended Emerson College where I received a B.F.A. in Film Production (specializing in Screenwriting) along with a minor in Fiction Writing.

Soon after I graduated I began working at Maker Studios, one of the top YouTube networks on the web. While there, I developed and wrote web content for top YouTubers such as ShayCarl and Timothy DeLaGhetto. I worked on dozens of parodies, sketches and web series as well as writing...

Service Description

If you have a character, an outline, or even just a basic premise, I can turn it into a full-fledged story for you. My expertise is in fiction and screenwriting and though much of my professional work has been comedic, I also have a lot of experience writing in the Sci-Fi, Thriller and Western genres.

If hired, I will go over your story with you carefully, determining what you already have in mind and what else needs to be created. I can also provide you with an outline of the story before I begin writing, to make sure that you are happy with the structure and flow of the narrative.

My policy as a freelancer is to give my clients what they need, when they need it. I don't get defensive about notes and I don't miss deadlines.
