My road in life took a while to figure out.
I always knew I wanted to be a writer or a storyteller.
At Phillips Academy I felt the world was my oyster.
At Princeton, I learned English Majors don't inherit the earth, bankers do.
I got to San Francisco two years too late to cash in on the Internet Boom.
So I became a bartender for a while, telling myself I'd write something.
Three years later, with mere fragments to show for it, I decided to move to Los Angeles.
The UCLA Professionals Program in Screenwriting gave me a leg up.
And luckily I got hired on "The Hills" where I got a graduate level education in TV.
Keep following my journey
