About Doug

I was in the IT world for well over 20 years until I lost m job due to.... unforeseen circumstances in 2014. Since then, I went back to my childhood roots - writing. I wrote 3 comedy/mystery books by the time I was 13 - sadly, I didn't send them off to get published... wish I did.

Anyways, since 2014, I wrote a full feature horror/thriller screenplay adaptation off of the album Abigail by the heavy metal artist King Diamond. I entered the screenplay into a contest where it won an Honorable Mention Award (had to score 85% or better) at the 2015 International Horror Hotel in Hudson, OH. While at the Horror Hotel Convention, I interacted with tons of writers, producers, directors, actors, etc, etc.

Since then, I've really got "the bug" and I've written another horror/thriller full feature screenplay ('Twincarnation'), a short comedy/horror screenplay ('Zombie Strain') and an updated comedy/horror remake screenplay of 'Reefer Madness' under the working title 'Tell Your Children' which we are in production now with.

Also in film, I was a Production Assistant for the martial arts comedy musical 'Innerself', worked as a script consultant for 5 episodes for the RetroTV show "Horror Hotel", and edited & segment directed in LegacyVerse Productions short horror film 'Divine Intervention' where I also starred in as the lead role - acted under the name Dylan Francis Calvi as an "homage name" to my mom who passed.
