About John

A curious nature and an overactive imagination have led 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.

As a writer 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.
