I am a US Army veteran. I worked for the VA Healthcare System for over 33 years. I developed educational programs and conducted group and individual psychotherapy in a Substance Abuse Program for returning veterans. I performed these duties on a multi-disciplinary team.
Throughout my VA career, I answered congressional and constituent correspondence. I wrote for a newsletter staff and drafted responses to internal investigations.
Upon leaving this profession, I fell in love with writing. After experiencing personal losses, I decided to pursue my dream in 2011.
I began writing screenplays. I have developed a daily habit of writing and have obtained several writing resources which enabled a continuing improvement of my craft.
I worked with a film company in Sidney for over two years developing skills and making industry contacts.
I'm currently taking a ProSeries course from ScreeningU to continue to elevate my writing. I focused on developing characters and subtext within the plot. My goal is to continue to upgrade my projects so that they will stand out from the norm.
I am in contact with many optioned writers around the world. Joining S32 has significantly improved chances of learning and meeting people who can turn scripts into a film.
S32 has fanned the flames of passion in the pursuit of accomplishing a dream of being paid to do what I love.
I attended a Robert McKee Seminar in New York last year, and it was an eye-opening experience. I loved NYC.
I'm looking for my next adventure in LA next spring.
Would love to share a cup of java with any S32 members. Happy writing.
