About me

Industry Arts
Occupation screenwriter
Location Los Angeles, CA, United States
Introduction I'm a working screenwriter, Nicholl Fellowship recipient, published writer of fiction and poetry, and occasional freelance script reader. ...No, Ace Underwood is not my real name (this would have required great foresight on the part of my parents). No, my name is not a reference to Carrie Underwood's dog; I came first. "Ace Underwood" is sort of a rebuttal to a famous derogatory nickname Jack Warner gave to screenwriters, whom he referred to as "Schmucks with Underwoods." (Just in case anyone thinks there was a time when screenwriters actually got respect!) My real identity is not exactly a big secret, I'd just rather not use it in connection with this site. Hollywood folks often Google each other prior to a meeting, and producers can get nervous when they discover that someone (particularly one of those pesky writers) has a blog. Therefore, if you know me, please refrain from using my real name when linking to this blog or leaving comments. Thank you.
Interests Reading, painting, hiking, Jeopardy!, crossword puzzles, strategy games, movies, vegetarian food, science, nature, animals, Houdini, Wile E. Coyote

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

My question is, how the hell do you get rid of the stupid "random question?"
