How did writing Project Z begin and how did it get picked up to become published? I wrote it the tail end of my gap year, and it was twice as long as it ended up being published. Last semester, I saw the Undergrad Publishing Submission posters on campus, I submitted it and it got published by Pub Club.
What can we expect from you in the future? I want to write for TV, young adult novels, and also some tech based programming.
What do you think is the best written show on TV? I loved The Sopranos, it was one of the first shows that got me into TV. But I think it’s a tie between The Sopranos (except the finale) and the first 5 seasons of Dexter.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Hopefully living back in Los Angeles, writing for a TV show, being employed would be the dream.
