Whether in co-founding University Middle School out of the UCLA Graduate School of Education or opening over 1300 new accounts with high-level construction contractors, or currently pursuing a career as a screenwriter, people enjoy having me on their team. Why? Because for some reason I have always seemed to be able to get along with people on the way to achieving my goals. That means even getting along with those that others seemed to find difficult.
In my current writing career, I have had the good fortune to be mentored by such people as Corey Mandel, Barney Lichtenstein, and working writers at the UCLA Writer's Program. These ladies and gentlemen have not only given me the skill-sets to be a great writer, but also have given me the tools to be able to work with top level producers and directors on a personal level.
I currently have two screenplays in development with Peck Entertainment and Creative Imagineers Agency. My passion is writing in the drama/romance genres. I have the audacity to strive to entertain, educate, and inspire thru my writing. I take "making a difference" to be a serious personal responsibility.
You may wonder, or not, about why I tend to write in the drama/romance genres. Funny you should ask. I have a wife, 4 daughters, 3 sons, and a female dog. 4 grandchildren are also part of the mix. Drama and romance just seem to somehow come naturally. Oh, to clarify,three of our children are called "sons and daughter-in-law." Gotta run. The phone is ringing. Probably more drama.
