Hughes is an LA-based improviser, writer, director, and, creative executive from Kansas City, Missouri. He currently works for Aline Brosh McKenna at her production pod Lean Machine, and writes scripted podcasts on the side for the Spotify original podcasts “Crimes of Passion” and “Unexplained Mysteries." He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he did improv with local campus group Without a Net, performed stand-up with Simply Chaos, and directed sketch videos for the school’s version of The Onion. Growing up, he spent most of his time scampering around his parents’ pizza place, The Dish Stuffed Pizza, only to move to LA where there is no good pizza. Such is life. In his free time, he likes to travel not only to relax (he’s worked for non-profits abroad in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Chile), read, cook, meditate, hike, and is thinking about trying bouldering one day.
Private Month Mentorship
Each month mentorship kicks off with a preliminary 15-min. call to set expectations and lay out strategy for the month. Writer will have email access to the executive plus 4x one-hour consultations with the exec. Exec will read up to 4 scripts in one month (different drafts of the same script or 4 different scripts) and conduct 4x one-hour story notes calls. Calls can also include feedback on your pitch, branding, or career strategy.
If you pay with the deposit/payment plan, your second half will be due the 2nd week of the Mentorship. If you need a different type of payment plan, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

After registering, you will receive an automatic Order Confirmation email. Then Roadmap's Director of Consultations, Terra Joy, will get your mentor looped in with you! If you do not hear from Terra or the exec within 3 days of registering, feel free to email email@example.com for an update.
