THE TEENAGE BODYGUARD (AKA, Slipping 'The Enterprise"), a true crime story from a week he spent in 1974 protecting a murder witness from the Tacoma mafia (yes, that was a real thing). This screenplay is starting to get attention. THE TEENAGE BODYGUARD, is getting coverages (The Blacklist, Bluecat Screenplay Contest) like, "This should be pursued into production", and "Why isn't this on screen already?".From entertainment attorney Michael Donaldson, "What an interesting story. Very well researched. This kind of the story is a perennial favorite. it is just the kind of story that is being gobbled up in the market right now. It is a good time for this story."

GRAY AND LOVER THE HEARTH TALES INCIDENT Incident (a semi finalist in the Circus Road Films screenplay contest).

AHRIMAN, a sci fi tale of two worlds, a violent desert planet and its prince/prophet (Ahriman), which is the first screenplay he wrote at the end of his college career after various writing classes and a year long series of a team script and screenwriting classes at Western Washington University
