Member Profile

Russell Beneke


I am a published novelist, produced playwright, and optioned screenwriter. I earned my MFA from The Tisch School at NYU in Theater, Film, and Television Writing in 2007; and I earned my B.A. in Latin Translation and Comparative Literature from Brown University in 2005.

A writer must play many parts in life in order to have experiences from which to draw upon. I have been a yard man, a waiter, an office assistant, a personal trainer for the rock band Muse while they toured the world, an event manager for a large company, a salesman, and most recently a business development finance executive. These varied, rich experiences have fostered a deep sense of understanding and perspective, both about life at large, and the individual paths humans experience.
