About Richard

Award winning spec screenwriter of multiple genres, both feature length and shorts. While I do write most of my own stories, I also have collaborative experience having worked with several Actors, Actresses and Authors on feature projects. I am always seeking creative connections and my next collaboration/new challenge. My greatest assets are my imagination and ability to write on the fly. My specialty is the horror/thriller genres which I've been a fan of my entire life. Let's Zoom or FaceTime!
