Unique traits: I Love researching and writing Victorian and Edwardian film scripts with theatre, art and early film elements. My first play then screenplay was "Cakewalk" about a vaudeville star who was the first to integrate all-white U.S. stages. Then came a one act play "Claire and Marie (Dressler)", set in the early talkies era. After another one-act WWII play "Churchill in Peril" , I wrote a feature script "I Love You, Oscar Wilde", which I'm marketing after a table-read by local stage actors and reaching PAGE semi-finals and finals NSI Features First (Canada). Am now completing a script for an hour-long, TV pilot for a 6 part series on Joseph of Arimathea's journey to Britannia with the Holy Family and Holy Grail.
