Brooklyn Nine-Nine was my first story writing job. I’m grateful to have written about the past two seasons and look forward to the final season, where I was able to co-write the season premiere, to air in the fall. https://t.co/1CmagVzEpa

It’s something I will probably never be able to say again, but I spent 7 years on a show and it was the best experience of my life. From making lunches as an office PA, to writing for the final season, and everything in between… thanks Brooklyn Nine-Nine. https://t.co/Aa9q6WFAhh
