While in college, years ago, I had been offered an internship with a playwrite in New York through my creative writing teacher. I decided instead to pursue my first love coaching, but the ideas kept piling up in a notebook I kept.  Retiring after 48 years of championship coaching, I have decided to explore that itch and intend to apply the same relentless pursuit to this field as I did to my coaching, learning and getting better every day.

My second script “7 Days in La Suerte” was received well in contest and professional coverage, placing in the top twenty percent as my first ever entree in the Nichols and being a finalist at the Austin. 

Since then I have completed two feature scripts. “Brother’s Keeper” that sends the hero journey into the “traditional western format.” It deals with elements of family abuse and love, racial notions after the civil war and renewal of spirit.

My third  “Get the Italian” I consider my best. It is an “everything that can go wrong does” dramedy in the vein of the Coen brothers. 

Once I decided to pursue this craft, I have explored every avenue (classes, books, videos, etc.) to be the best and can and, like my coaching, make somebody’s life a little better.


All comments and advice are welcome.
