To answer your first question, it's pronounced "koochin-burg."
To answer your second question, yes, I'd love to write for you! Originally from outside of Chicagoland, I have an inexhaustible Midwestern work ethic, an intimate familiarity with poverty, and a really harsh Chicago accent. I write in many different genres, though I have a particular penchant for magical-realist quasi-surrealist stories taking place in richly realized worlds. My other great love is writing comedy: I would describe my comedic style as a rich, satisfying, chocolatey core of easily-digestible lowbrow humor with a candy coating of smart jokes and esoteric references.
My passion for storytelling drives me. I've won several awards for my writing and filmmaking, including finishing in the Top 50 of the Academy Nicholls Screenwriting Fellowship. Currently I write comedy professionally with Cracked.com as a columnist. My long-term goal is to be writing staff on a television program, and from there to eventually become a showrunner.
Let's make something together.
Sci-Fi - Western - Feature
When the robotic defenses of post-apocalyptic Chicago's last free city suddenly stop working, an enigmatic scout, a fast-talking comm officer, and a bitter scientist must travel to reactivate them before barbarians destroy their home.
