I am a writer and sometimes a filmmaker, and generally a maker of things. I have other hobbies and interests too, of course. For instance, I have devoted significant hours of my life to studying languages I will probably never have much use for in the larger scheme of things – Welsh, German, Korean, Portuguese, American Sign. I’m average at best at most of them.
I’ve won some awards and stuff for my short screenplays and for a documentary I helped produce, and now I’ve used that information to trick you into thinking I’m awesome.
Several years ago I met the verifiably Coolest Guy in the Universe and have been married to him for over TEN YEARS, which feels like kind of a big deal. Four years ago a tiny human came into our lives through a process I’d mostly like to forget ( I’m talking about both the pregnancy and birthing parts here), and he is (unbiased opinion) the funniest kid in history.
I spend a lot of time with the boy-o and the man-o, and a lot of time teaching piano, and a good amount of time sewing and making things, and as much time as I can writing–or thinking about writing, or thinking about thinking about writing. You know, that sort of thing.
