I'm an attorney by trade, but a writer at heart. I have written several shorts, and I am currently involved with a feature that I have worked on the past year that is now in development, with an Australian director at the helm. I also have a short film produced, "Country Road 12" that stars Dee Wallace ("E.T.", "Poltergeist").

I have also co-written one dramedy, "The Journeyers", that was just optioned with Josh Monkarsh of Traffic City Productions, and is in development. I have one drama pilot, "Bounty," about a Texas bounty hunter, and a second comedy pilot, "Striking Out," about a struggling L.A. actor who has to come home to small town Texas and run his grandfather's bowling alley. I'm finishing up a comedy about nerds who run roughshod over a high school which should be completed soon.

Recently Rick Hansberry and I started working on a new script together ("Lake Regret") and we're blogging about the process from beginning to end, including the marketing and hopefully eventual sale and production of the script.  You can read our efforts here at  Feel free to add comments, make suggestions or ask questions.  Would love to hear from you!

I enjoy writing both comedy and drama, and tend to lean towards indie-themed pieces that are character driven. I enjoy the works of Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad") and Graham Yost ("Justified"), and while I'm not subconsciously emulating their work, I certainly wouldn't be disappointed if my scripts were favorably compared to theirs. I enjoy reviewing scripts and providing advice and constructive criticism to other writers, and would welcome the opportunity to work collaboratively with any producers/directors looking to work with me on any type of project.
