Originally from the L.A. area (The SFV) Used to be the box-boy to the stars working at a supermarket in the Sherman Oaks area. Grew up in Van Nuys/Encino area when it was affordable.
For my day job, I am a Certified Medical Data Analyst working with all specialties, Work from home doing contract work for various hospitals and medical groups.
I wrote my first script when I was 10 y/o. Titled "Fort Nasa" it was the story of a moon landing that was attacked by unknown aliens who set up a colony on the moon. Kind of a we are the UFOs. I had these spaceman figurines and made a stage out of a box. Made all backgrounds and little sets, Would put on shows for family and kids in my neighborhood.
Writing was something I really liked in school as it allowed me creative freedom. My teachers were always impressed in my ability to create thoughts and visuals. Used to write satirical news reports and commercials for History, English classes and talent shows.. Taking exams was a different story, I sucked at it. My first writing was for my high school newspaper where I wrote the sports page. I was going to major in Journalism in Junior College but I got bored getting my general education units out of the way so I just left school and skipped going to University despite the enormous amounts of peer pressure I received (What are you going to do with your life?).
My writing continued as I wrote short stories for contests sponsored by various publications.
I ended up worked various jobs before I landed in the medical business field. Then I pursued writing as a hobby entering various story contests given by magazines and newspapers. Movies came into my life and I became fascinated by screenwriters and the movie making process and it went from there.
Fast forward... today I am an Award winning spec screenwriter of multiple genres, both feature length and shorts. I've had a love of movies ever since I was kid and I used to daydream my own movies in my head whenever I was bored then I put pen to paper. Writing, reading books and movies became a good escape for me as I didn't have a lot of friends. 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. Had a few that were close to production but the producers backed out at the last minute (Hollywood Heartbreak). Part of the business I guess. Just keep trying.
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.
Have recently started to do some voice acting as my new goal is to self produce and star in story trailers for my scripts..
