I missed my shot at becoming a successful psychopath and instead pursued a career in the arts, which instead led to a 20 year stint in the service industry. No regrets: working in restaurants, bars and clubs brought practical efficiency and a strong work ethic to my art, as well as paying the bills and supplying me with infinite stories and characters. Now my techie wife has encouraged me to put down the cocktail shaker (aside from making drinks for her) and take my shot at fulfilling my lifelong career dream. Since diving in 3 years ago every script I’ve submitted to competitions has made finals. My scripts are consistently in the top 20 on Coverfly’s Redlist and Launchpad’s top 100.
