Emmy-nominated television writer will help you make your paper, story, script or essay shine, develop your writing process or create that next great idea.

Methodology

Whether you're working on a paper, a story, a screenplay or even just an important email, I can proofread and give feedback on your work, as well as teach you how to be a better brainstormer, editor and planner for when we're not working together. If you do not have a specific piece of writing you're working on, we can hone your writing process or develop that next great idea.

Background

I've worked for many years as a television writer/producer in Los Angeles, but I started out as a Montessori school teacher in Chicago. In addition to working with students in traditional classrooms, I spent many years teaching sketch and improv comedy, helping students find their creative voices. In spite of a busy schedule, I still love teaching and helping writers take their work to new heights.
