An avid cinephile, and former film critic. In recent years I have discovered a passion for screenwriting. This year, I have been fortunate to have four of my short scripts optioned, with three currently in production. At the moment, I am hard at work on an ambitious series about silent Hollywood, and two science fiction features.

Feel free to contact me at - - regarding any comments or inquiries.
