Rafael Waack

Freelance Writer

United States

I am an NYU Tisch School of the Arts honors graduate and freelance writer. Among my most recent work, I was a head writer for a news comedy show which was optioned by Russia Today's UK Branch, as well as for a technology web series in Portuguese, sponsored by Sunsea Brazil. I was a memoirist to a Korean War survivor and had my work published for her family and friends. I am an experienced story consultant and worked, most recently, with Sedona Feretto, whose resulting screenplay was a finalist in several screenwriting contests. I was a quarter finalist for my own screenplay, Christmas, MI, at the 2018 WeScreenplay Feature Contest. Beyond these experiences, I am a passionate learner and intent storyteller, always eager to explore different voices, genres, and media.
