I'm an ordained pastor currently serving as the Director Renew Counseling Associates in Fairfield, CT. While serving part-time as the pastor of a small church in Maine several years ago, I started on my screenwriting career after becoming thoroughly intrigued by the life of John Newton, the author of the lyrics to "Amazing Grace". I have since co-written another screenplay that is an uplifting and family friendly movie entitled "Mr. Wonder Boy". Having spent a good part of my life dealing with the deep issues of human souls and relationships, I believe I have the ability to create multi-dimensional characters and believable dialogue. My desire is to create films that in subtle and entertaining ways point people to the love and grace of God. Looking for an agent or manager with the same passion.
