I'm proud of the work posted here and the stories you're about to read. You have your choice of feature screenplays, numerous shorts (including a VR short) and some comic formats in case you're up for something a bit different. The links to my comics would make awesome storyboards if you want to bring the story to life. If you like what you read, feel free to give it some love and tic the the heart icon. Been around... Seen some things... Yep, a helluva story teller. No sh*t, there I was.... Go to bio
