About Joe

I’m a professional screenwriter who takes his art seriously in developing profound, multi-layered characters and high concept stories. I’ve written a dozen screenplays, over 20 short screenplays and 4 TV series pilots, a graphic novel available as digital downloads or as hard copies, and I’ve produced, directed, AD’d on about 10 short films, some of which have won competitions. I’ve place 2nd, 3rd and consistently rank in at least quarter finals of all major international screenplay competitions (Nicholls, Blue Cat, Page). I have mentored writers, I belong to a writer’s room here in my home town, I do script coverage for Odin’s Eye Entertainment, and I am a production assistant to the CEO of The Film Distillery.

It’s only in the last few months that I decided to take a direction and treat screenwriting as a business, focusing on strategies that will get my material sold, including widening my network of producers and managers.
