About Curtis

Screenwriter, Filmmaker, Stand-up Comic and author. I am like everyone else...going for it...writing with the intentions to shoot. I wrote and directed two films, worked on many more and I am always looking to help others go after their dreams. I have authored and published two books, a motivational filmmaking book "Just Shoot It!" and a success book "The Ultimate You: Achieving Greatness" Pursue your dreams until you take your last breath. Take that first step and enjoy the journey. Feel free to ask for help and we can both learn together. Best wishes, Curtis
