I am a freelance writer for independent films with credits on IMDB. My most recent film, "Micky's Summer Resort" is currently making the rounds. I won a playwriting award in 1997 for a one act play and my short film, "Kelly Deerdale, Naturist" is on Vimeo.
As a freelance writer, I've co-written "Blue Dream" and "Samurai Cop: Deadly Vengeance" for Cineridge Entertainment. I have also acted on stage in both L.A. and Honolulu.
