Occupation: Screenwriter

Unique traits: Growing up as a "bastard" and , at the time, one of the rare "white kids" in the middle of the "projects", I was beat and locked in a closet until a family member took me from my Dad at gunpoint when I was 2. When I was 18, my 15 year old brother hanged himself in a barn. It challenged me to really look at what makes me, me, us, us and why we do what we do. I have always been drawn to stories that really speak to the heart no matter the genre. These experiences have given me a unique writing voice and afforded me the ability to connect with others.
