When I saw my first "making of," I fell in love with the art of filmmaking, and visual storytelling in particular. In 2009 and 2010 I studied Filmmaking and Screenwriting at the New York Film Academy. While attending Cornell Unversity I took two semesters of Screenwriting with Austin Bunn, who wrote films like Kill Your Darlings, and I also taught Screenwriting Workshops for the Cornell Film Club. Ever since, I've been building a portfolio of feature scripts.

In the Drama Heart of a Lyon, a college professor with a heart ailment meets his terminally ill heart-donor for a lifesaving transplant - but his savior comes with a peculiar request and some secret baggage of his own. (first draft: July 2012. I'm also working on turning this story into a novel)
