About John

I am a gold mine of jaw-dropping experiences. As a U.S. diplomat and ambassador, I was a nuclear arms negotiator, in Embassy Moscow as the USSR was disintegrating, at the United Nations, worked with and befriended Nelson Mandela, in charge of many crises (see the IPA's gold medal winning, The Embassy A Story of War and Diplomacy, by Dante Paradiso), on Wall Street during the financial crisis, consultant on crisis management to governments and firms, and started it all out as an Army officer.

Presently, I head up a small, start-up company, Bridge of Gold Entertainment LLC, which writes both fictional and non-fictional screenplays. Listed below are the awards of our company's non-fictional flagship script ("The Embassy" aka "The Bridge of Gold"). We also offer fictional screenplays, such as "The Demon Stone" (horror, five accolades), and our newest screenplays, RE-LIFE (sci-fi/horror), and "2020" (animation/drama).



  • The Embassy

    The Embassy Budget: $30M+ | Historical Thriller A handful of Americans and Africans risk it all on a mission to stop a civilian massacre when a ruthless rebel army storms the capital of an equally murderous warlord President-- a thrilling true story.

  • The Demon Stone

    The Demon Stone Budget: $1M - $5M | Horror In braided narratives, The Demon Stone spins a terrifying story about the spiritual and political forces that incite the basest, bloodiest and most frightening of human behaviors

  • Re-Life

    Re-Life Budget: $5M - $10M | Sci-fi Horror A Wall Street billionaire coopts his closest friends, steals and murders to engineer the first successful brain transplant.  But a new identity can't hide his growing depravity.

  • 2020

    2020 Drama Animation As COVID unfolds, two old men (a Vietnam veteran and a former diplomat) seek solace in computer gaming.  They join an international tribe of much younger gamers whose members must fight for survival online, and in the real world.
