Hello there!

These are just a few of my personal favorite spec Television Pilots, shorts, and features in various drafts. 

I'm a screenwriter (and longtime actor) with a penchant for dark comedy, and "lovable loser" characters. I've written over a dozen spec TV pilots and features, as well as sketch comedy, and produced short films. I have been an inconsistently working actor for two decades, and have produced and directed a few short films, plays, and spec commercials.

I was an only child in a single parent home. Originally, I grew up in Ohio. Though, I was born in Albuequerque, NEW Mexico (Trump would probably demand I present a green card), and left Ohio after college to pursue my crazy dream. I lived in Wilmington, NC for several years, working in television, theatre, and Anime voice-over all over the Southeast.

My favorite color is blue (specifically, cobalt, baby, and teal. My mother was partial to country blue, and turquoise). I enjoy short walks on plush carpeting, holding hands with myself, and going to movies with anyone who will shut the hell up while it's playing. I also have a lovely singing voice, and enjoy belting out a tune into my shampoo bottle.

I'm a childhood Cancer “SurThriver”, and considered a PWD (Performer With Disability) due to a limp caused by the radiation cancer treatments as an infant. I was orphaned at an early age, and spent some time in foster care. I lived a full life by the time I was 25. I use my life experiences, and modest successes to (hopefully) encourage others, and entertain them through my wit and off-beat humor. I love what I do, and fortunate to have the ability to follow my dreams.

After reading my first pilot attempt - Draft one of ‘One of the Girls’ - Don Payne (Co-Exec./Writer for The Simpsons) not only became my mentor for a few years, prior to his unfortunate passing from bone cancer, but also co-financed other short film projects of mine.  His encouragement, feedback, guidance, and support over those all too short years gave me the nudge I needed to believe in my story-telling abilities.

I (attempt to) write rich, quirky, interesting characters, with witty, quick-paced dialogue, and stories that would fit perfectly on streaming platforms, such as Netflix, Amazon, and the like.

I appreciate your attention to my work here, and welcome feedback (and, of course, employment opportunities!).
