I was born in 1986 in Brooklyn, New York. I moved to Virginia at the age of three, but my close-knit family raised me to always appreciate my New York heritage. The importance of family, a respect for the past, while always keeping an eye toward the future, was engrained in me. These values remain underpinnings in how I approach writing scripts. Like many, I dealt with bullying during my childhood and adolescence that resulted in me feeling like an outsider and fostered in me empathy for the pain of others. With the encouragement of family and teachers I discovered writing as a way to explore the perspective of both perpetrator and victim, which I found therapeutic. Naturally I have had the usual grunt jobs that range from working in warehouses, summer programs for city youth, bagging groceries and...
