Raised next to Ernest Hemingway’s home hidden in the Idaho mountains, Wyatt grew comfortable living among literary ghosts. He is dedicated to telling original, experimental, and honest stories that find funny in the absurd and suspense in the surreal. He believes the importance of storytelling lies in its ability to reveal vulnerable and fragile human qualities, and thereby promote empathy across communities. He graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. in English Literature in 2014 and shortly after moved to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting. Since connecting in 2015 with his collaborator and Magpie Factory co-founder, Will Hamilton, he’s presented two of their four short films at film festivals such as Cannes, Austin, Hollyshorts, and Newcastle. He is currently working on his debut novel, as well as cooking up future scripts to tackle once his current feature has wrapped.
