THE COUP

THE RED ZONE

SAIGON '63

 

I graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts in 2012 with degrees in Film Production and Screenwriting, and completed the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting in 2015.

 

My work has ranked in the top seven percent of entries in the Academy Nicholl Fellowships, placed in the semifinals of the Cinestory Screenwriting Contest, and been nominated for UCLA's Nate Wilson Joie De Vivre Award in Screenwriting.

I tell stories that the winners of history

never wanted you to learn: of idealists

born too early and villains whose

rapes, murders, and coups

changed the world for the worse.

My stories celebrate freedom, justice,

equality, and the people who fight for

them in the face of death — the kind of

romantic heroes of old who've become

an endangered species among today's

cynical pop culture icons.

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.'

All issues are political issues.

GEORGE ORWELL
