Two of My Scripts Made it to the Second Round of the Austin Film Festival!

I just got the news that my TV spec script "You're the Worst: Real Jimmy, Real Gretchen" advanced to the second round of the Austin Film Festival's screenplay competition. This is a tremendous honor, as 11,907 were submitted this year and fewer than 20% of them made it to the second round.

Even better, my full-length play "Lay Me Gently on the Floor" also made it to the second round of the Austin Film Festival's Playwriting Competition. So, I guess I’m a double second-rounder.

As a writer, I’m of course afflicted with crippling self-doubt, so recognition like this really means a lot to me. I’m now eligible for a number of panels at the festival and am contemplating a fall trip to Texas. 🌵🤠💥
