Ottawa, Canada

Here to rep the nation's capitol: Ottawa. I'm an acting teacher, published poet and short story writer who made the switch to screenplays in recent years. I've been a theatre director/actor/designer since sometime in the last century. My passion project is to bring the true story of a Canadian hero named Yvon Durelle (DOUX, Quarter-Finalist in Screencraft True Story), a boxer who fought the great champion Archie Moore in 1958 for the World Light-Heavyweight title, to the screen. Since we're Canadian, we don't usually celebrate our heroes with the passion they have inspired in us. We have to change that. This is the perfect time for us to remember Durelle's remarkable life and career. Just a Canadian "Rocky"? No, "Rocky" was Hollywood... Durelle's story is not only reality, it's an unflinching look into the heart and soul of a real man and the nation he brought to its feet one snowy night in December of 1958.

THE BOOKSTORE (horror short), Winner of BEST SHORT SCRIPT at the Independent Horror Movie Awards competition.  

TALONS, a mystery/thriller adaptation of a novel (same name), scored TOP 6% in Coverfly all-time Thriller genre.

THE SUN DOES NOT MOVE (horror short, QF at Vancouver Bad Ass FF, Official Selection at Cleveland Horror FF, Independent Horror Movie Awards FF, Toronto Indie Shorts FF)

A TV pilot called ONE YEAR (Quarter-Finalist, Screencraft) as well as the entire first season (9 episodes). I know, I know, they say don't write the whole season but I had the stories in my head and no other writing in progress at the time so I did it anyway.

I have a second TV Pilot called BEES-HIVE (also a Quarter-Finalist, Screencraft).

Being Canadian, I'm obviously a big hockey fan, though I cheer for one of those teams who mostly just provide deep, soul-searching disappointment every year. Oh, and of course I listen to RUSH!  I hope to connect with the screenwriterverse out here to share, learn, encourage and support. 

I hope you reach out, connect... we can exchange reads, give notes/support or just make a nice new friendship.
