I bring my 25 years of experience in the NYPD as a Police Officer, Sergeant, Internal Affairs Investigator, Detective and Detective Supervisor to the writing table. Successfully pitched, sold and contributed to the writing on a television pilot for the FX Network. I continue writing stories with characters and insight born from experience that few writers can equal. I enjoy the collaborative process and working as part of a team to bring our shared vision to life.
