About JC

Screenwriter for Hire. I am also quite willing to do re-writes or adaptations of other works. Also, I have numerous spec scripts in varying genres (some of which are listed on this profile), several of which have been optioned. I do consider my focus to be 'popcorn' movies; fun stories that lend themselves to multiple viewings.

Working remote in Cincinnati, writing action, horror and comedy. Currently, I am part of the Story Development team for an MMO RPG video game and have written a majority of the dialog for their past 3 major updates as well as contribute to storyline and the game's online blog and wiki.

My horror/action script Scarlet Seas was on the Talentville Top 10 over four weeks running in addition to numerous contest placemants and being a Coverfly Pitch Week 2022 Finalist and on the Red List 3 times. My TV pilot NightSide was also the #2 TV script at CJ Walley's Script Revolution. Joe Florance of Circle of 10 Talent has been kind enough to work with me in the past.

Bachelor of Arts from Western Kentucky was in Mass Communications (Radio, TV, Advertising) with a minor in English Composition. Classes included broadcast TV and Radio, TV and Radio production, Journalism, Literature, Acting, Stage Production. In addition, I worked for several semesters at the campus radio station, on-air and editing advertising copy.

Unique traits: Empty-nester of 3, cat-dad of 6 fuzzes, old-school video gamer who still plays, lover of horror films, horror hosts, pro wrestling, and all things pirate.
