I'm a screenwriter of big, booming Action-Monster-Adventure-Sci Fi-Fantasy-Thriller screenplays. I currently have four screenplays ready for development.
I'd love to talk to any filmmakers who are looking for that kind of material - big, visual, international, exciting MOVIE movies. They're all original IP, they're all feature-length specs, and I'd love to send you a .pdf of any of them.
I've been on Stage 32 for a good while now - but I haven't been able to make many connections. If there's a vein of the site I should be exploring more closely, let me know what it is! I'm trying to sell some specs.

Let me know if I you'd like to take a look at any of these:
NIGHTBREAK (Sci-Fi / Disaster Epic) After the Earth stops turning, the US President’s daughter fights to get her husband, a Chinese geophysicist in Beijing, across the Nightside’s empty Pacific ocean bed and the chaotic, sun-burned Dayside America to get to Washington - with a plan to save the world. But crossing half the planet is easy compared to convincing her father to unleash America’s arsenal.
THE SWORD AND THE SERPENT (Adventure / Fantasy) When their quiet fishing village is attacked by Viking marauders, the scattered members of one Scottish family must fight for survival. The spirited teenage daughter and her crafty little brother then must risk their lives to summon the village's ancient guardian from its exile - at the far end of Loch Ness.
FRAX (Sci-Fi / Action) After a fracking drill bit destroys its hidden, underwater hatchery, a vengeful river monster in South Texas goes on a rampage against the machines and people threatening it - and an oil company scuba diver must risk everything to save his boss when she’s snatched off her fracking rig by the beast.
KAMELEON (Thriller / Musical) Liz strangles musicians with guitar strings. Zero runs an Open Mike night. When she comes to his show, hunting for new prey, Zero is “volunteered” by a shattered FBI vet to help ID her, unravel her motive, and stop her - before he becomes her next victim.
All of my scripts have gotten some love in various screenwriting contests:
NIGHTBREAK was the 1st Runner-Up (Second Place) at the recent Fantastic Planet Film Festival in Sydney, Australia; it just won the Gold Award at the California Film Awards, it was a Semi-Finalist at the Other Worlds Austin Film Festival, and was a Quarter-Finalist at the 2016 ScreenCraft Sci-Fi Screenplay Contest.
THE SWORD AND THE SERPENT was an Official Selection and finalist at the inaugural Famous Monsters of Filmland Silver Scream Film Festival last spring in Santa Rosa. Later in the year, the script was named an Official Selection again, one of the Top Nine finalists, at the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival in New York. It's also an Official Selection at the current Madhouse Movies Film festival.
FRAX was a Semi-Finalist at the FilmQuest Screenplay Contest last year, and a Semi-Finalist at the GenreBlast Screenplay Contest. It was just named an Official Selection at the Famous Monsters of Filmland Silver Scream Film Festival, and was also an Official Selection at the Madhouse Movies Film Festival. It was a Quarter-Finalist at the ScreenCraft Action Screenplay Contest in 2015.
KAMELEON was a Quarter-Finalist in Final Draft’s Big Break screenplay competition, and a Quarter-Finalist at Scriptapalooza in 2015. It was an Official Selection at the Los Angeles Theater Festival that year. It's currently in the Top Ten Urban Screenplays at MovieBytes' WinningScripts Contest.
