I'm excited to be a Second Rounder for my romantic comedy, Love Sick. Thank you AFF!

As a writer, I revel in getting characters to move forward when all they want to do is hide under a desk. The most fertile ground I've found for dysfunction is the romantic comedy. I love them (and sort of hate them, too). In fact, when I first started dating, I watched as many as I could. I saw them as tutorials on what relationships should look like. And so did my friends. We all did. But, turns out, characters in romantic comedies are terrible partners. They make horrible decisions, leave out critical information about themselves, and create unrealistic expectations for the level of excitement you should have on a date. So, for the good of movie-goers everywhere, I'm doing something about it. You're welcome.

I've recently dipped my toe into the production side of filmmaking - working as a Script Supervisor in two short films. I got my undergrad in Engineering at Michigan State University, then switched gears to screenwriting when I moved to Chicago and began training at University of Chicago’s Writer’s Studio.
