Sloan Launch Party at Carnegie Mellon University

I just got back from my beloved Pittsburgh, where I spoke with the current Dramatic Writing MFA students about my experience writing a science-based screenplay. That script, "Capturing the Stars," won the Alfred P. Sloan Student Screenwriting Award in 2012 and received an Honorable Mention for the Sloan/Tribeca Grand Jury Prize in 2013. I was joined by Michael Wood-Vasey, a professor of Physics & Astronomy at The University of Pittsburgh, who served as my brilliant adviser during that writing process.
