Bitch List, 2016

Jan 1, 2016

Representation matters.  When women and minority groups see themselves at the center of stories, our experience is validated.  That’s why Thuc Nguyen put together the Bitch List.

The Bitch List is “stories we hope will get optioned/bought/made in the coming year and the future- the most liked so far un-produced screenplays read by industry professionals in 2015 that feature two named women/girls/transwomen talking about something other than a man– It’s just as simple as that.”

I’m incredibly proud to announce that Mutant Taco made the list of screenplays that are ready to be optioned, bought and made into films. The un-produced screenplays on the list have been read and voted on by industry professionals who think it’s about time Hollywood starts producing more films that show women, girls and trans women as equal to men.

The list has been featured on Huffington Post and is starting to get play among industry pros.  I’m honored to have been included… and am looking forward to the future.  Because the future is female.

CONSUME. DESTROY.

This holiday season was filled with candy canes, twinkle lights, shopping carts, mass consumption, and nuclear war.  At least in my world.  Please, gaze upon the brilliance of Brian Frisk, my friend and comedy homeboy.  Go to Frownhouse for more of his work.

Peace.

Mutant Taco: zine release

Dec 12, 2015

I’ve been busy writing an animated series, Mutant Taco.  It’s about less-than-motivated mutants working at a futuristic fast-food restaurant.  Basic premise, right?

I’ve been lucky enough to have a multitude of talented co-conspirators at my side for this one.  At a recent Mutant Taco reading/ zine release, eight excellent actors brought the characters to life.  Held at Art Share in downtown LA, the reading brought out friends new and old.

The Mutant Taco Work Mutations Guide made its fancy debut as well.  Printed with love in LA by risograph masters Tiny Splendor, you can snag a copy here.
