After devouring countless Shakespeare plays, Eugene Ramos earned a degree in British Literature of the 1500s from Northwestern University. He later graduated from Columbia University with an MFA in Film. He wrote, directed, and produced a number of shorts, including The Concoction and Dandelion Fall, both of which garnered awards and honors at several film festivals. While at Columbia, he also received a fellowship from Comedy Central. In 2009 he completed the NATPE Diversity Fellowship Program and was invited to participate in NAMIC’s Writers’ Workshop. His spec scripts and prose for the TV shows “Battlestar Galactica,” “Painkiller Jane,” “Supernatural,” “The Big Bang Theory,” and “Star Trek” have won or placed in several competitions. Most recently, his romantic-comedy screenplay, Newton’s Laws of Emotion, was selected by the Hamptons International Film Festival, in collaboration with The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, for its annual screenwriters’ lab. Because of his love for the Bard and science fiction, Ramos’ friends have nicknamed him The Sci-Fi Shakespeare Guy.
