Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm Co-President of the Claremont Colleges Screenwriting Guild. The other Co-President is Reid Mitchell, a Pomona senior who will be teaching this class too. I'm from the south of the Bay Area and have been in love with filmmaking ever since I saw High School Musical! My other interests include robotics, poetry, guitar, making horrible puns, and building stuff. The shows I am currently watching on Netflix are The West Wing and Psych. If you were to ask me what my spirit fruit is, I would say "mango".

Reid is from New York and has also loved film from a young age. Some of his favorite movies are Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and Smart House. He loves coding (especially in Haskell), and his favorite band is The Killers (his favorite song by them is "All These Things That I've Done"). His favorite social media platform is Snapchat. If you were to ask him what his spirit fruit is, he would say "cantaloupe".
