Bio

I’ve been a writer and/or writing instructor my entire life, having done everything from technical manuals to entertainment reporting to a decade as a writer-producer in one-hour network TV drama. My two main fields are composition/writing and film/media studies, and I’ve taught everything from composition to research writing to screenwriting, from fiction to film studies to filmmaking to writing video games. When I’m not doing any of that, I hang out with my family, watch a lot of movies, and read a lot of books.
