Nice to see other writers here.

I'm a UX Content Strategist for a Health Insurance Company, originally started out in Advertising as a Copywriter... but got tired of advertising and loved being more useful by shaping creative experiences. 

I minored in Creative Writing in school, so I loved writing short stories. Fell out of love with it by the time I graduated. I loved character development and dialogue, so one day I had a conversation with a content freelancer who was also a screenwriter. She's the one who told me about NYCMidnight, and I entered early last year to learn as went along. Haven't looked back since!

I’m a researcher-for-hire. I work for companies that don’t have in-house Research & Development departments due to downsizing. Most of the companies I work for are foreign. I’ve been doing this for 20-years. I get to work at home and set my own hours.

For the past few years I have been under contract with Danica Patrick to be her escort for whenever she comes to Thailand for rest and relaxation.  I have found this to be very fulfilling.

In a way, I hate how it keeps being relevant. 

Also, thanks!


The is no way in which I don't hate how it's relevant.  Why can't we just...I don't know...be adults?

Oh, well.  I blame AOL.  Seriously.  It took 20 years, give or take.

Office Assistant in the Fine Arts department at a university. 

I graduated with a B.A. in Theatre and a B.A. in Film Production from Michigan State. While in school I would write sketches and my own content for my Acting on Camera class. I liked writing so I enrolled in a screenwriting class where we had to have a rough draft for a feature film by the end of the semester. 4 months. I loved it so much!

Now since I'm at a desk on a computer all day I work on my screenplays. Just finished a short that's about 29 pages and currently working on two new features. Hoping to eventually win a fellowship like the Academy Nicholls, Sundance Development, Nickelodeon or Disney. Have to get better at the craft as I feel like I'm currently better at coming up with ideas than writing itself. This community is helping a lot and I'm forever grateful from what I've been learning from you all!
