My feature comedy, children's movie and documentary won awards at film festivals in New York, Houston, Flagstaff and Ohio. I am a songwriter and a music publisher. Prior to becoming a writer, producer, director and filmmaker, I was a radio news anchor/news director/air personality and a writer for The Cleveland Plain Dealer. My primary focus is writing. My goal is to make more of my award winning screenplays into movies. I also want to connect with others who are seeking screenplays and share my passion for the stories that are too big for my small independent production company to make.
