About

The purpose of this blog is to provide practical business advice to writers, collected from my years of experience working various studio and production company day jobs. I don’t pretend to know everything, but I have been around long enough to see both the highs and lows of the writing business. My hope is that this site’s information will help you get the most out of those highs and avoid as many of the lows as possible. Check out my first post for more information.

For those who are interested in my story, here’s the short version:

After graduating from the Cal State Long Beach film program in 2004, I landed my first assistant job in 2005 and have been working in the entertainment industry ever since. Over the past decade-plus, I’ve had the opportunity to work in production, development, and business affairs for companies both large and small, including Marvel, The Weinstein Company, Beacon Pictures, and a few startups in between.

I sold my first feature, The Right Girl (written with Bob Saenz), in 2012, which was released on the PixL Movie Channel in November 2015. I continue to write in my spare time.
