About Chris

In the face of such hopelessness as our eventual, unavoidable death, there is little sense in not at least trying to accomplish all of your wildest dreams in life.”
--Kevin Smith

I came to screenwriting later in life.

I’d always loved film and television, but as someone from a blue-collar family and living on the wrong coast, it wasn’t ever something I'd consider even for fun let alone as a career. Until I met a group of local actors who started making short films as part of the 48 Hour Film Project, which had its humble beginnings near me in Washington DC.

This turned into a decade-long hobby making short films. In that time, I helped write four award-winning 48 Hour Film Project shorts, including the BEST FILM from the 2013 Baltimore competition and BEST WRITING for DC 2016.

Filmmaking was a real leg-up in my screenwriter education, which I further developed by reading the books (you know the ones), taking classes and running a workshop for two years.

I have been a Finalist in contests from AMAZON STUDIOS and the LONDON SCREENWRITERS FESTIVAL and a Semi-Finalist at the Austin Film Festival in 2018.

Today, I’m still chasing the dream...
