here is the first script i wrote, a short, dark comedy called BROBOT. it came in 4th place in the slamdance screenwriting competition. back then, there was no short film script category. mine was the only short in the top 10, with the other 9 being features.

slamdance put together staged readings for the top 10 scripts, and that was the first time i got to see my written work come alive. it was amazing!

i had my phone interview with nbc on wed, and was told i’d probably hear by the end of the week whether or not i made it to the next round. i was trying to lower my hopes and expectations because the odds are i wasn’t going to advance. i saw someone post that about 1600 people submitted, 50 get phone interviews, 20 get in person interviews, and 8 writers get selected. i thought, just being 1 of the 50 writers who made it to the next round is somewhat of an accomplishment. it’s a little bit of validation that lets me know i’m not entirely crazy to be pursuing this dream.

as i was thinking this, the phone rang, and it was nbc. they liked chatting with me and wanted to set up a time for an in person interview! i made it to the next round, and my interview is on 9/17 which is a week and half away.
