About John

Writing is a love, no, a passion of mine, since my early twenties. Beginning my craft with several small short stories, I found comfort and satisfaction in putting pen to paper, creating and sharing sharing my vision and work with others. Life detoured me for a number of years, and I returned to writing in 2017, and boy, have I made up for my hiatus!

I've completed five feature screenplays, two of which are optioned by a producer with Uallywood Studios and Odessa Film Studio, working with producer/actor Chris Place. "Garden of Eden", a dramady, was sold and is currently in production, filming in four locations.

One of my scripts, "Home", a horror screenplay, finished as a quarterfinalist in 2021's Screencraft Screenwriting Contest, and I placed in the top 25% of horror projects on Coverfly. Another feature script, "Two" placed as a quarterfinalist in both of 2021's NYC Screenplay Awards and Chicago Screenplay Awards.

I strongly believe in collaboration, and unity, inside the industry field, with the more who succeed, the better. Often, I give feedback and notes to fellow screenwriters in script swaps, and I receive it as well, as I am always learning and growing as a writer, practicing what I say, because we can all help each other, and make each of our individual journeys more educational, pleasant, and meaningful by working together.

I co-host the Thursday night Pitch Practice Session with the wonderful Brooklynn Fields at 5:30 pm PST, where I invite all writers to attend and hone their pitch techniques.

Let's chat, anytime, and see how we can help each other, for the next opportunity is right around the corner.
