About Elvis

I'm a veteran with a mad passion for storytelling. In my previous life as a salesman, I made a living by telling stories about products and services. Purely as a hobby, I also wrote, directed, and produced two short films that were accepted into small, local film festivals in Colorado.

After a layoff and a lot of soul-searching in 2016, I decided to pursue my passion full-time. I started my own company and began the pursuit of a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Professional Screenwriting, which I completed in the Fall of 2019. I’ve since completed three feature screenplays, one half-hour single-cam TV pilot, outlined a crime procedural, and I’ve created a full bible for a comic series.

I am currently a contributing sports writer on FanSided covering the San Francisco 49ers and working with artists to bring my comic to life. I have recently started submitting my work to festivals, competitions, and fellowships. If you are an entertainment professional and could use the help of a talented writer, or would like to collaborate somehow, hit me up!

My favorite genres are:

Action
Adventure
Fantasy
Sci-fi
Drama
Contained thrillers

Unique traits: MFA in Professional Screenwriting (2019), Comic book creator and writer, Military background, Former linguist with FBI
