About Aaron W. Sala

Born in Illinois but California raised, Aaron Sala is currently finishing up his senior year at Carleton College, where he is a cinema and media studies major. He's been writing screenplays and directing short films since high school. His screenplays have been tacitly acknowledged by a few competitions, and the Emmy's Drama Screenwriting Internship almost picked him up once. When he's not writing, he consumes far more TV and movies than he probably should, and if his mother knew how many horror films he watched, she'd probably never let him back into the house. Someone told him he was funny once, and he's been pretending they were right ever since.
