I love telling compelling stories through screenwriting and photography. To date, I have written five feature-length scripts, five short scripts, and six short stories. Three Collections of Poetry have been self-published and a 26-Episode Series entitled, "Exos of Destiny" is available to read online based on the video game, "Destiny," created by Bungie.
I had the pleasure of attending APU for "Screenwriting" in Fall 2011 Semester learning from Professors Thomas Parham and Susan Isaacs. My short script entitled, "No Fear," was produced as a Student Film and entered into the 2011 Azusa Pacific University 48-Hour Film Festival. Because of the amazing improvisation by the Cast and Crew, the film won the First Place, Best Actor, and Best Actress Awards.
I am interested in working with Directors, Producers, & Screenwriters to create more stories.

Print Poet What have you done in your life that makes it seem impossible to recover from? A crucial mistake? A misunderstanding? A tendency to cling to immaturity? A row of decisions that scream irresponsibility? Or have you committed the greatest sin: Not really doing anything? No goals. No dreams. Believing life & success come easy. You took time for granted & now it feels like your time is up. Wasted. I know the feeling. You wake up every morning wondering: Why am I still here? There’s no purpose, no use, no hope of accomplishing anything. I thought the same. Until one day I realized, I am not here by chance. There is a reason for being.

Print Poet | Writer "Speak" is my second collection of writing. It features poetry, including "Skin" and "My Last Prayer" and short stories like "Just a Fan" and "The Judge." Short scripts (Too Cold for Meowing), essays (A History of Blood), and personal stories like "Escaping Pornography" are also included. My goal in this book is to be more transparent as an individual in order to help and inspire others. Most of the work was written between 2012 and 2013. It gives the reader a clearer view of who I am today along with the message I want to share.
The Beginning of Me
Print Poet As I began my journey into adulthood, I realized the persona of what I was led to believe a man should be was a standard I could not meet. I believed in God, but I did not believe in me. I felt fear. I felt anxiety. I felt insecure. And I could tell no one about it. Instead, I began to write my feelings down in the form of poetry on scraps of paper. This process helped me to be honest with myself about who I saw in the mirror. As you read through, maybe it can help you, too.
Forgiveness: 3rd Edition
Print Writer Four wealthy, Christian families experience similar tragedies in a short period of time. Each has lost a loved one to a drunk driver. The families soon learn of each other and began to build friendships. However, the time comes when helping each other through the grieving process is not enough. They look to God for answers only to find an emptiness inside. As a result, they decide to take matters into their own hands. This triggers a chain reaction of events that threaten to turn the nation upside down. In the end, sometimes the only answer we receive from God is to forgive.
