Award-winning writer of features and shorts. Work is sometimes a bit edgy and often has a twist. I believe that good screenplays make us deal with hard issues, and change us for the better.

I am looking for vehicles to connect with other writers and producers. Currently working as a technology analyst, so I especially like looking at the impact technology has on society. Also interested in general in using stories to talk about issues with Society, and helping to effect positive change.  

Also willing to discuss turning any of these shorts into features. If interested, let me know.

Heavily influenced by Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, and Phillip K. Dick. 

Currently, I have forty-five shorts in production (including three web series), and would love to work on some more.

Special Note on "Helping You To Forget". I have someone who would be willing to license this one and put it on their paid site if it were done with high enough production values. So a chance for someone to recoup some investment if you are interested.

Proposal to Producers and Fellow Writers

Feel free to look through these scripts. I will keep it updated with new ones as they become available

I am happy to work out a deal with you to have you produce 1 or 2 scripts. But let me offer up something else. Have you considered doing a web series? My thinking is that with the popularity of Black Mirror and the relaunch of the Twilight Zone, anthologies are a big deal right now.

I would love to work with you if you want to move to the next level in your work by doing a web series. Who knows? It might lead to bigger things, such as a TV show. Let’s dream a bit, and do something more than create shorts for contests (although using them for that is still fine).

So let me know. I look forward to seeing what we can do together.
