A writer since age five, I moved to LA in 2003 with an English degree from UC Irvine. I earned a certificate in screenwriting from UCLA’s Professionals Program in 2005 while getting an insider view of the Industry from a President’s assistant desk at Paramount Pictures. That same year, I started my blog, Heidiwood where I chronicled my career and romance ups and downs.
In 2007, my rom-com script, Fixing Emma, was a semi-finalist in the Creative Screenwriting Expo contest. In 2008, my husband and I founded Michelangelo Screenwriting offering retreats and workshops to help other writers realize their creative visions. In 2014, that evolved into PageCraft with classes in Italy and LA. In 2009, I produced a low-budget indie thriller. After that taste of bringing a script to life, I knew this was what I wanted to dedicate my life to.
I’ve judged for the Slamdance Film Festival screenwriting contest (among others) and co-founded the Slamdance Script Clinic. My writing clients include Emmy winners, TV legends, and brand new writers too.
I love working with actors and musicians as they elevate what began as mere words on a page. Whether it’s helping others find their voices or sharing my own imagination, you can find me creating. To that end, my production partner and I started Supposable Productions and together have created most of the content on the pages here.
