Hi there.

I'm an award-winning screenwriter based in San Francisco. While open to working in any genre, I'm always up for creating a ripping yarn that grabs the viewer and takes them on a rollercoaster ride of thrills and excitement. I love to craft a story that simultaneously showcases a character's emotional journey set amidst high-octane action sequences, along with a couple of jokes thrown in for good measure.

I'm also a notoriously meticulous script editor and proofreader, with the ability to spot a rogue comma or misspelled word at a hundred paces (give or take 99 paces).

When not writing, rewriting, or reading scripts, I enjoy watching movies, reading comic books, running somewhat long distances, and making what could possibly be the best pecan pie west of the Mississippi. Check out my screenwriting blog at
