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 changes us for the better.

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.  

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

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

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.

I think that my work could serve as a basis for what you want to do. It doesn't all need to be my work, of course. We can put together a group of like-minded writers. A couple options:

  1. A number of these stories are science fiction. We could easily put a series together around that.
  2. A script like “Manolo” could be the basis of a series on immigration or social issues in general.
  3. “The Male Curfew” would serve as a cornerstone around feminist issues.
  4. “I Am the Dreamer of Dreams” could support a look at depression and suicide.

I am sure that we could think of more. My point is, 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.
