Eric Belgau grew up in the forests of rural Washington and attended the University of Redlands, where he worked in theatre and songwriting. After moving to Los Angeles, he found a niche developing feature film projects for indie producers and performing high-leverage rewrites, while also becoming a prolific entrepreneur, marketer, and activist. He has worked in animation, TV, and feature film, and published a nonfiction book. Eric moved back to the Pacific Northwest, where he maintains ongoing development contracts with Beaulian Films and Ardmore Entertainment, collaborates frequently with other writers, and is a principal at A3Zero, an international digital agency. In addition to writing, he publishes Living Local, a quarterly newspaper with a local circulation of 80,000, advocates for local economics and food systems, is an avid gardener and orchardist, and spends as much time as possible with his children while they’re still young enough to like him.
