PageCraft Mentors


As our lead mentor, I will help you strengthen your craft. Many of our clients have gone on to find representation, win contests, and become working writers. A graduate of UCLA’s screenwriting program, I’ve written numerous features, treatments, and TV pilots for various independent producers. In addition, I’ve directed and produced numerous commercials, music videos, and electronic press kits for various artists. I apply our PageCraft story principles to my own projects resulting in engaging pieces and happy clients. I will train you to do the same to unlock the potential of your writing.
