About Alvin

After overseeing IT at the largest hospital in New York where I saw the reluctant convergence of medicine and computers, I wrote a scientific thriller, GRIDLOCK. The book earned highest praise in the Daphne Writer's Contest. The medical action thriller has now been adapted into a screenplay by the same name.

Title: GRIDLOCK Locations: San Francisco, Geneva, Tokyo
Genre: Action Thriller

I also Won Best Screenplay in the Top Shorts Contest with made-for TV, Single Man, Empty Fridge. It’s dark comedy about three divorced men, coping with rediscovering man mojo.

Title: Single Man, Empty Fridge Location: Northern California
Genre: Dark Comedy

I look forward to making new connections and bringing compelling stories to film.

Next, Marty becomes divorce dad coach to Brian, introducing him to the single man’s Yoda, Carson, the Off-Off-Broadway Actor.
