About Me

I was born in the college town of Manhattan, KS, also known as Aggieville, home of the K-State Wildcats.  I grew up in a suburb of Kansas City.  In high school, I got a taste of performing arts through my school select choir, the Madrigals, and the KC All-Metro Choir.  I also did plays and musicals.  Alongside an  economics major at American U. in Washington, I spent as much time as I could in acting classes or on stage, and I even managed to get work on a major Hollywood movie, Forrest Gump.  In 1996, I moved to France to study film and received an MFA from the Sorbonne.  Ten narrative shorts and 30-plus industrial films later, I am an active screenwriter, and I recently wrote and directed my debut feature film, Callback.  Please visit our Fan page on Facebook to find out more.  Just type CALLBACK in the search.

    It looks improbable to come for the movie on mardi; is there any other way to see it? Some of us- in academics- would really like to have a discussion on it but are unable to see it that day.
