Telling stories that move you on screen and in fiction.

Also: filmmaker. Enby, queer (they/them).

I'm a queer, trans* screenwriter and writer of fiction. I'm also proud to call myself a fan – though one look at my AO3 profile will probably show that.

Writing & Services

You need a second pair of eyes for your feature screenplay, TV pilot, writing sample or even your outline or treatment?

You want someone to help you improve your story?

Once you’ve written something – a script, an outline, a treatment – how do you know whether it connects with the reader? How do you spot a script’s faults when the only pair of eyes you have is your own?

That’s how: you enlist help.

Screenwriting

Film and TV is a world that both enthralls and frustrates me. I get very passionate about stories I love, but those tales I truly want to see on screen, those I write myself.

Fiction

There is nothing like creating a world from scratch and filling it with compelling characters and conflict. Even better when you get to move readers with your tales!

Fanfiction

I'm proud to call myself a fan and a fic writer, since fandom is where I learned what it means to tell stories and how brilliant it feels to profoundly move readers with your tales.

Essays

With a B.A. in anthropology and film studies, as well as extensive experience in journalism, I tackle the world around me in essays and articles alike.
