About Ted

Originally from Boston, Mass, I am a screenwriter and director who specializes in thoughtful, character driven thrillers. My neo-noir, thriller "Blue Motel" won the Grand Prize in ScriptShark's Insider Screenplay contest. Most recently, I have been invited to officially join ISA’s Development Program with my crime thriller “Underground”.

I find inspiration in the works of the great noir writers Dasheill Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Ross MacDonald as well as my screenwriting idols Scott Frank, Shane Black, Tony Gilroy and Richard Wenk.

A twenty year veteran of the film industry, I have worked as a First Assistant Director on over fifty independent feature films including Paul Lieberstein’s “Song of Back and Neck’, Miranda July's "The Future" and the Sundance award-winner "Quinceañera.”

My ultimate career goal is to one day write a line of dialogue as infamous and beloved as “Go ahead. Make my day,” “I’m the one who knocks,” or “Yipee-ki-yay, motherf*cker.”

I am a graduate of Emerson College and I live in Los Angeles with my amazing wife and two cats.
