As a late bloomer, I have been writing since 2009 and have a dozen awards from film festivals that don't mean squat to me since they haven't really advanced my career and without any schooling in the sales section of film, find that creating a pile of original concept films and shorts is much easier that finding someone to make them... ugh...
I have 30+ full features and about as many shorts including 6 tv series that I will be submitting to Austin Film festival this year if they aren't picked up or optioned prior.
I also content edit scripts and proof (have done them for producers locally and in California) and can usually step in as a script doctor if given 24 hours notice to travel. From directing to dressing sets, I am a jack of all trades behind the camera. I have often been on set when problems arise and if you ever work with me, will soon realize that I am the go to when they need to get smoothed out.
I have had my OSHA-10 training for many years as well as perform Safety classes prior to weapons use on set. Plus, I require all cast and crew to attend my safety class when any weapon (live or not) is used on set. I have also been doing electrical and mechanical work for many years with my hand in pneumatics and hydraulics.
You take a chance on me and I won't disappoint because I am getting very tired of making other people rich when I should have done it for myself.
Unique traits: I am 7/8 white + 1/8 Choctaw, but don't look it other than almost no body hair other than on my head and that's starting to get a bit thin.
