About Theo

"Making the next sentence better than the last."

As a writer and observer of all things creative, I find myself writing in the space of action, drama, and fiction. "Not by choice, but by passion." Combining historical, fictional, and sometimes biographical elements spark the new idea or re-energize an existing one.

Writing about strong women, people of color, young people, and individuals with diverse abilities are always exciting and emotionally satisfying.

Being multi-hyphenated to some may be considered problematic. Being knowledgeable of all facets of the industry, in front of the camera and behind, shows my professionalism. Always respectful of the creatives on-set, the office suites, and everyone in between script to screen.

Scripts:
DEADPEN (short) development
Marathon Man (series concept)
Morgaine's Law (half-hour dramedy)
Simone & Bones (short animated)
Firehouse Dolls (hour pilot)

Projects:
Adventures at the Chosen Few (Youtube)
Paradise Garage vs. Muzic Box (Youtube) (low resolution)

Programs:
NYU/tisch film program 2020
Writer's room 50/50 2019
MIT entrepreneurship extension 2017
American Film Festival participant 2016-17
American Black Film Festival participant 2015-2017

Looking forward to sharing my talent, support, and resources.

The work is the work, is the work! Write on!

Unique traits: Former amateur Barrel and Relay Horseback competitor. Track and Field 400mm runner (400m USATF). F1 enthusiast (European circuit) Yamaha R1/R6 (top speed 177 full open) Worldbuilding with fictional and historical facts. That's my secret sauce.
