Merritt Squad! Web Series is Funded!

Merritt Squad!

Meet the Merritt Squad! Vince Faso, Maura Halloran, Peter Townley, Carina, Lastimosa Salazar

Colin Johnson and I have been working feverishly to bring our 8-episode web series to life and we’re delighted that nearly 100 backers recently made generous pledges to take Merritt Squad! from our Final Draft software to internet-capable screens everywhere.

Our Kickstarter page features preview trailers with early footage and bios and head shots of our actors. We can’t wait to start posting the polished episodes at the end of 2014!

Science Fair the Musical wins Sloan Screenwriting Prize

On Sunday, August 10th, I was honored that my full-length screenplay “Science Fair the Musical” was one of four first place screenplays in the Alfred P. Sloan Screenwriting Competition at Carnegie Mellon University. I am planning to use part of the $9,000 cash prize to work with a composer to develop music for the songs. Congratulations to my co-winners Josh Ginsburg, Julie Jigour, and Savannah Reich for also putting together incredible work!
