I have been writing short stories and drawing cartoons since I was in grammar school in Chicago. I was a bit of a delinquent when I was young and got into trouble with the police many times. When I finally wised up, I got a union job in the building trades and subsequently built over two hundred playgrounds for inner-city children in Chicago. I started writing screenplays twenty years ago while recovering from three severe work-related injuries that led to surgeries that have left me physically challenged. Man, I thought getting in trouble with the police, severe injuries, and the subsequent surgeries and growing up in the inner-city was tough, but this screenwriting thing is a whole new world of pain and anguish. But you know what? I love writing. Even though it's consuming my life. Even when faced with the ultimate lurking enemy, the fear of failure, I can't stop. And when I don't have my laptop I'm scribbling on whatever paper I can scrounge up, or I write on my hand. And the sitting at the laptop and not finding the right words, only to have them appear in my head at random times (sleeping, showering, intimate times, etc...) just about any time I leave the laptop. Anyways, I put my heart and soul into my writing and I'm an extremely empathetic person that has had a very interesting life. All I want to do is tell stories, make people laugh and cry, but most of all I hope that I can help them to understand that we are all the same given the same circumstances and conditions. But when given the opportunity to learn, we can all rise above our shortcomings and surprise even the most ardent of our detractors, thus changing their perception. If I can accomplish any of this I will not fail.

I am more than willing to revise any of my scripts to better fit the budgetary restraints of film production costs for anyone interested in purchasing one of them.
