Like most professionals, Danielle’s path started on a winding trail lead by her passion for writing. Her writing grew into publishing full novels and a trilogy. A friend asked for her help in writing a screenplay and, BAM she was hooked. This event changed the course of her primary focus to work in the film industry. For a few years, Danielle worked for a production company being a principal screenwriter. As her passion, knowledge, and skill grew Danielle branched off on her own to form her own film production company. Currently, she works on short episodes and short films coving a range of topics while most are underpinned with topics that are raw, tragic, and sheds light on fractions of society underexplored and underrepresented in contemporary media.

As she states, “Do well, to do good. I love words. I love molding them, playing with them, learning about them. I love helping other people use them. I love to read and I’m a fan of pretty much every genre out there. Through my work with Global Wordsmiths and Global Words Press, I get to spend all my time doing things with words, which makes me a very happy editor.”
