I'm a screenwriter in Ohio looking to make connections with both the entertainment world at large and especially with other creative folks in the U.S. Midwest.
I’m currently working with Shadow Wolves Productions and Paid In Blood Films to create the horror short “Thunk”. In the past I've worked in feature film development with Zero Gravity Managment (Ozark) and directors Jaime Osorio Marquez (The Squad, The Sacrifice) and James Del Gatto (15 Rounds, Ghost in the Graveyard), as well as television content development for Aura Media Productions (Comic Vibe) and gaming content for YouGoFar Productions. I’ve also been a Semi-Finalist (top 2% out of 7,000 entries) in the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition and a Finalist in the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival Screenplay Contest.
My fiction and poetry have been published around 60 times in anthologies (For When the Veil Drops and Read by Dawn Vols. 1 – 3 ), magazines (Space and Time), and online (). My writing has earned me 3 Honorable Mentions in The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror and a nomination for the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s annual Rhysling Award.
My usual genres are horror and psychological thriller; I believe my background as a professional behavior specialist helps me create realistic characters and place them in terrifying situations. However, I'm also interested in science fiction, fantasy, dark drama, and offbeat comedy.
