Screenwriter, editor and producer in Vancouver, Canada
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.
