I worked on a variety of productions including; Mad About You, Last of The Mohicans, Frequent Flyer (ABC MOW), Prince of Tides, Cool World, When A Man Loves A Woman, I Love Trouble, and Mad Love, among others. Additionally, I worked as a script consultant and reader for several major talent agencies.
I was co-producer of "Sea Devils" for Blue Marlin Productions, an independent film company. While not making it to the big screen, "Sea Devils" had attached Billy Zane, Til Schweiger and Val Kilmer in key roles before losing its financing.
My writing experience includes 3+ years writing magazine articles for a number of publishers most notably, the DGA (Director’s Guild of America) Magazine, with copywriting and editing experience. I'm a methodical researcher, skilled at writing press releases, and drafting speeches and copy on varied subject matters. Both as screenwriter and producer I've had several projects in active development with various Hollywood studios and production companies.
Having worked with both Honda Motorcycles and John Milius’ Bear surf and clothing line, I have experience in product placement and branding. My achievements include having merchandise placed on Friends, The Drew Carey Show, Talk Soup and Mad About You.
I also have experience managing publicity campaigns within the film and entertainment industry in Hollywood, including the preparation of media releases and other media packages utilising a range of media including; print, radio, and the Internet to generate awareness and promote events to targeted audiences.
