Where are you from and what inspired you to become a television writer?

I grew up in London, Ontario, Canada (with a short stint in London, England). The characters inspired me to become a television writer. I love writing for characters who evolve: they make mistakes, fall in love, fail, succeed… all within the world of a show. It’s limitless! And unlike features, there’s no need to write “the end.”

What Spec did you write to get into the workshop?

Who is your all time favorite television character and why?

It’s a close tie between Dexter Morgan and Buffy Summers. That might say a lot – perhaps too much – about me! I have to go with Buffy, because she is the perfect combination of strength and vulnerability; of intelligence and emotion. She kicked ass, looked cute, and literally and metaphorically fought the demons we all face growing up.
