The cool thing about writing dramas about life is you get to choose how the story goes. Be it a short about a young boy and his father, or a feature about a senior citizen romance. Dad saves the day. An old flame is reignited. Or not. How life in the story turns out depends on how I write it. It can be very therapeutic.

I've been writing screenplays for 20+ years. Most of my work is dramas, from a single pager about a woman's transition to a 130 page epic LGBTQ war drama. I enjoy the long process of developing a feature, but I also enjoy experimenting with shorts (I once wrote a short that was told through the doors the characters went through). I recently completed my first thriller, based on actual events, called HURRICANE.
