When you want to be a policeman who robs banks, or an athlete who has his eyes set on an Olympic gold medal, or a lawyer trying to desperately free an innocent man, or maybe a ship's captain fighting off an alien race of parasites, then you want to be a writer.
I have worked as an EMT in a Los Angeles ER, I have spent time as a Marine Corps machine-gunner, I have worked construction sites, as well as curated art galleries. I have worked my grandfather's farm and when not doing that, grew up traveling the world as an Army brat. I have gone from popcorn popper in an art house movie theater to filming behind-the-scenes footage for major motion pictures. I have a BA in animation and digital arts from USC's film school.
