My great-great-great grandparents homesteaded in the Bitterroot valley in the 1870s. Growing up, I was enthralled by real life stories from my grandparents about the Old West. They say write what you know and I know the contemporary West which is why nearly all of my scripts are set in Montana.
From a young age, I was choreographing dances, recording my own radio programs, drawing floor plans, and reenacting action scenes from movies. It wasn’t until I was 16 when I put it all together. At a family yard sale, all I could see were props. I asked for a video camera for my birthday and I was off.
