I like to write character studies of complex, flawed people within a genre framework.

I funded, cast, shot and released a web series in under a calendar year. You can watch "Confessions of a Superhero" on YouTube in its entirety. 

I've had two scripts optioned: "The Merc: Fake Tales of a Real Man" by Pause 'n' Rewind Studios and "Three Generations of Me" by But Why Productions. A third, the adaptation of Bob Hamer's novel "The Last Undercover," is currently in development.

My original short film, "The Executioner's Dilemma," was a semi-finalist at the 2020 Iron Bridge Film Festival.

I'm currently in post-production with my feature film debut, "Save State." It's a time travel romantic comedy best described as "Source Code" meets "Clerks."
