Personal Summary

Second career candidate, with writing mileage under the belt and long experience in creative development and ideas pitching. 

I seek to be involved in projects that touch my social and emotional sensitivities.

I'm mostly attracted and I write about stories that challenge people to reconsider their personal values, maybe abort their self-destructive journeys and be reminded of what really matters.

Particularly interested in TV story development. 

MBA educated and BA (Hons) obtained from British Universities. UCLA Extension classes on story analysis and TV Series Development. 

I am looking to work in production companies, studios or networks, in development, writing and production or for a showrunner/writer/producer. 

I am pretty open to any temp, contract or more permanent team constellations, that make sense for my career objective.
