Storyteller | Script Coordinator | Steam Car Repairwoman
CJ is a comedy/dramedy writer focused on telling women-driven stories with heart. Her love of comedy began at an early age, watching reruns of Rocky & Bullwinkle and challenging her parents to increasingly absurd pun-offs. While she compulsively livejournaled the daily dramas of her all-girls education, it took until high school for her to write her first play (a love story between a lake monster and human camp counselor) at French-immersion summer camp, at which point she - like the lake monster - was hooked.
After college, CJ followed her love of comedic kaiju storytelling to a development desk at Roger Corman's company, then to a different behemoth - ABC's General Hospital. Her subsequent credits include six episodes of GH, the six-part comedy play series Camp Ragnarok with Theatre Unleashed, and five episodes of Pencil Ink Film's webseries The Misselthwaite Archives, based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden. Her short play, SNOW, which follows two frazzled archivists reassembling endless piles of paperwork shredded by an impulsive president, won the ENCORE! Producers Award at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival. She was honored to be included in the 2019 Bitch List.
