My name is Pascual “Shakoure Char” Carpenter. I am a NYC based creative with the ambitious goal of becoming a visionary screenwriter and media entrepreneur. I have written a number of scripts/stories including modern action thrillers, dramas, and paranormal attractions. I am also currently developing a social justice media series called, FROM BARS II BENJAMINS. Despite being incarcerated at a young age for an unjust, high profile conviction, I was determined to obtain my G.E.D. and ended up earning a master’s degree. With so much support and lessons learned, I've gained a deeper sense of purpose, patience, integrity, and spiritual identity. I wish to be in a position someday to help trigger transformative change in the lives of other young people through my work as a writer, entrepreneur, mentor, and speaker.
