Pasadena, United States

California native.  Born in Los Angeles after my parents moved there from Chicago, where my father wrote for television after WWII and college.  Have lived in San Fernando Valley, Orange County, Palo Alto, Florence (Italy), Washington, D.C., New Haven (Connecticut), West Los Angeles, Germany, and Sacramento.  Currently live in Pasadena, California.  Stanford undergrad.  Played basketball until hurt my sophomore year, Yale Law School.  

Non-lawyer jobs include assembling board games, gas station attendant, assembling yachts, picking up trash at the beach, washing dorm windows, maintenance at a golf course, painting the take off boards for the long jump and triple jump (jock job, where I was literally paid between coats to watch paint dry), janitorial work at Sears, paralegal at the U.S. Justice Department.  Legal jobs include judicial law clerk, federal prosecutor, law professor, and federal public defender.  

I genuinely enjoy writing scripts and I appreciate any and all who read them.  As of February 2022, I've completed sixteen feature film screenplays, 10 shorts, and two television pilots.  After receiving feedback from screenwriting contests, I've significantly revised about half of my screenplays and will be reworking the others the rest of this spring.  Then I'll try to either springboard any successful contest entries into acquiring a manager/agent or just try to drum up one on my own.   Should all of this fail, I'll go back to the drawing board this summer, with some new projects.

Good luck to everyone on Script Revolution.
