About Montgomery

I recently wrote and executive produced the short comedy film "The United Guys Network" on StoryHive. My teleplay "Career Move" was produced for Alfred Hitchcock Presents on USA Network, and my Twilight Zone script "Borrowed Time" took second prize in the Writer's Digest Writing Competition. The NW Radio Network also produced my black comedy, "Leonard McTivey's Last Day at Work." I received two Praxis screenwriting fellowships through Simon Fraser University, and for several years I have run Upwords, an ongoing screenwriters workshop that develops new talent.

Unique traits: Also employed as a video news editor. Whether I’m working with pictures on the screen or words on a page, I’m foremost a storyteller. And it’s that storyteller’s approach I bring to all the projects I create.
