About Michael

I didn't start having my own writing aspirations (and ambition to learn the craft) until later in life. Several of my scripts have placed in national contests and one has been produced. Two of my features are now script-books. I'm an author!

A methodical writer with a touch of procrastination. This means it may not get done fast, but I'll keep writing until it's right.

I actively serve our local writers group, the Iowa Scriptwriters Alliance, in many capacities.

Recently started my own production LLC. Fade In Professional is my software of choice.

I'm actively seeking representation, and hope to have at least one script (if not more) developed at a major studio. (Warner Bros or Universal is the dream.)

Unique traits: Persistence at attempting perfection, or maybe it's just OCD.
