Orange, United States

Breaking into Hollywood is like playing the lottery, and I learned that the hard way.  With a degree in Journalism, I moved to Southern California to pursue a career in television.  I wrote spec scripts and met with producers at Paramount Studios.  I truly thought it was all going to be easy.  But shows got canceled, I was too young, and my unsigned agent stopped returning phone calls.

I reluctantly started a career in radio as an assistant to the assistant, then got into news (writing boring articles from aged city council meetings). Finally, I got into television. What started as a writer and producer of commercials and infomercials behind the scenes grew into a reporter and news anchor! I took low-paying jobs at small stations in the Mariana Islands, Louisiana, and became a morning news anchor at NBC affiliate in Palm Springs!

Several years ago, I decided to take higher-paying jobs in television and settled down with my family in Orange County. I've since been writing fiction on the side (my first love) and pursuing the career that brought me out here twenty-five years ago!

I've written screenplays, sitcoms, TV shows, novels, and several short plays. I will gladly write anything for anyone anytime to prove my value as a writer.
