Based in southern California, I’m a produced screenwriter with comedy and mystery credits in Germany.
I love language! I studied ancient languages at Stanford University (B.A.) and linguistics at San Jose State (M.A.) and have supervised university writing centers for freshman English and grad students in business.
A passion for stories led me to write comedic novels under the pen name Gwen Ellery and a historical thriller as Imogen Bold. I’ve also been active as a screenwriter in the development lab for screenwriters Deadline Junkies, a series of table reads in North Hollywood theaters and on Zoom.
In my free time, I hike, read, and study 3D animation using iClone and Epic Games’ Unreal Engline. In additon, I’m proficient in After Effects, AVID and Premiere Pro.
