The Cult of Us
(romantic comedy)

Fact: Cult members do believe cults exist; they’re just incapable of believing that they’re in one.

Logline:  An uptight computer programmer tries to save his feisty roommate/secret-crush from her sketchy, business-empowerment cult. But, when she realizes it’s his flaky meditation group that’s really a cult, they must confront the harsh truth about their beliefs before they lose everything, including each other.

This screenplay has advanced into the 2015 Academy Nicholl Fellowship Quarter-Finalist round. It was a pitch finalist and Second Rounder at the Austin Film Festival. I’ve been featured in a number of national media pieces about cults, including an award-winning Dateline NBC expose about the cult leader I followed for a year (it totally seemed like a great idea at the time).
