Comedy Writer with an Urban/Hip-Hop Sensibility

Just saying hello...I worked in finance for 15 years and finally decided to quit and pursue writing full time less than a year ago. I published a teen sci-fi novel (Beta Planet), and completed a teen hip-hop comedy feature script and two specs for Black-ish, and working on a pilot now. I'm also in a certificate program at UCLA for screenwriting and just trying to network and learn the craft. I think my script needs a bit more editing though and I need help...I've had requests for the script but nothing beyond that yet. All my info is at

Great story, Sid. This world can always use more comedy! (Finance, too, but comedy is a lot more easily distributed.) ;-) Best of success!
