When I was six-years-old, I was introduced to drama class in elementary school. Inspired by what I learned in that class, I would go home and perform monologues for my mother. That eventually morphed into writing my own plays and performing them for friends, family, and neighbors. As time went on, I discovered my love for storytelling.
While finishing up my Entertainment Business Degree, I began a writing internship at a local studio in Atlanta and assisted with writing a children’s television show pilot titled, “The Adventures Of Cory.” During my time as an intern, I had no clue how to write a screenplay but was willing to learn. It was during this internship that I downloaded my first screenwriting software called Celtx.
After working on a few more film sets, I rediscovered my passion for storytelling but lacked the technique it takes to properly write an industry standard screenplay. In February 2016, I re-enrolled in Full Sail University and eventually earned my MFA in Creative Writing.
