My Why

I grew up loving the cinema. I still do. That love spurned me towards storytelling. At first, I started out as an actor and soon realized, while I enjoy it, I prefer creating the story and not just being part of it and I've been telling stories for over 20 years. When we all start watching movies and television shows and we find the ones we love, we really don't know why. But my desire to become a storyteller forced me to realize that without story, without great writing, all those movies wouldn't last. It's the story that keeps the great ones with us for our lives.

My Work

I started out creating skit shows on VHS-C which, as you can guess, was cutting edge back in the day. Way back in the day. From there, I wrote short stories, screenplays and a few terrible novellas. I directed a feature I penned in 2005 titled, "Save the Forest", which enjoyed a small run on Netflix as well as being released internationally through Echelon Entertainment. I created the short film, "The Hero", which was a finalist for TriggerStreet.com's annual festival in 2005. and developed two successful web series, "The Puzzle Maker's Son" and "Scenes from the Movies" From there, I published my first novel "Adam Parker and the Radioactive Scout". In 2015, my script "Kiddo" was a quarterfinalist for the Nicholl Fellowsgip and in 2017, I was nominated for a Writer's Guild Award for Outstanding Writing in New Media for my short "Life Ends @ 30" Currently, I've completed my latest script "A Sister in Need" and I'm writing a follow up novel in the Adam Parker series.

My Life

I was all in 15 years ago. Writing, directing, editing, producing. I loved it. My wife and I met in acting class and we worked together on a variety of projects. Ultimatekly, I decided to step away and start a family. Currently, I reside in southern Connecticut with my wife, three kids, three dogs, two bunnies and a messy house. My wife has recently informed me that she would like to own a pig. Send help.

But through all this time, I never stopped writing. I don't think I could ever stop. Telling stories is in my DNA.
