Suspense thrillers that make you go, "WHAT?!" are my thing. I hope my audience enjoys the sensational ride of "feels" and surprises I try to plant in my suspense thrillers/dramas!
Three years ago, my goal was to sign with a manager, and it happened. I'm proud to have been represented by CSP Management, but now I am in search of a new manager. This year, it's time to get one of my originals actually made. Fingers crossed!
In 2019, I completed two "for hire" feature films. I also worked with director John Woodruff (ANIMAL AMONG US) to polish my SHUNNED feature, which is now in the hands of Dave Hansen (Netflix's IO, GO KARTS, and SIBERIA), to move it toward production! My original feature, BLOOD RUNS COLD, is in need of development funds as legendary DP and director Andrzej Bartkowiak (ROMEO MUST DIE, DEAD RECKONING, DOOM, SPEED), Andrzej Bartowiak (SPEED, ROMEO MUST DIE) is on deck to direct.
SHOUT OUT to Stage 32. If it weren't for this site, my scripts would be a mess, and no one in Hollywood would ever have seen them. So I hope screenwriters take advantage of the Script Services here. All of my scripts have earned placement or awards in screenplay contests, including HollyShorts, Big Apple FF, Flicker's Rhode Island International FF, and NOLA Horror Film Festival.
I also offer pitch deck services to writers via my website:
