Gahanna, United States

I am a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, a published playwright and produced screenwriter. My plays have been produced across the US and Europe. My screenplays have earned awards at several film festivals. I teach writing for film and stage at the high school level as well as writing for change leaders in the business world. I grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from the University of Dayton and live in Ohio with my wife and a son with Down syndrome who keeps alive a sense of wonder in the family.  I am willing to modify my screenplays to fit budget, talent and location. I hope you enjoy my work.  Happy filmmaking!
