Based in southern California, I’m a produced screenwriter with comedy and mystery credits in Germany.
A passion for stories led me to write comedic novels under the pen name Gwen Ellery. Currently, I’m active in a development lab for screenwriters and actors called Deadline Junkies, a series of table reads on Zoom and in North Hollywood theaters.
In my free time, I hike, read, and study animation and video editing techniques. I’m proficient in After Effects, AVID and Premiere Pro.
