About John

A curious nature and an overactive imagination have lead me down many paths in life: Former Peace Corps volunteer, big ticket sales engineer, custom home builder, commercial graphic artist, successful international packaging design consultant, recovering golfer and now an award-winning and produced scriptwriter.

My voice is character driven, slightly dark and quirky with a dash of humor. Ten of my shorts have been showcased on Shootin' The Shorts and 2 of these have been produced. My dystopian horror short, Baby Soup, won the 2013 Florida Independent Filmmakers Contest, was adapted and produced. To see my shorts, features and pilots available for production, please visit:
