Even though Nancy Isaak has always wanted to write for feature films, she has traveled a circuitous route getting there. Her previous jobs have included being a California State Park Aide, a Kelly Girl, and a Communications Corporal in the Armed Forces. In between, she has acted in over 50 commercials, been a stuntwoman, and directed her first short film, The Mostly True Story of a First Date I Once Had. Isaak is most proud of her recent accomplishments: she put a down payment on the first home she has ever owned and went to Russian to adopt her five year old son. Now, if NASA would only admit her to the Space Program, then she says her life would be complete.
Nancy Isaak won the Script Development award at The Tribeca Film Festival in 2003 for Glow Worms
