Truth be told, I started writing at about 10 years old when I found an old dusty typewriter in dad’s basement. The keys had to be mashed for the letters to clearly show up on the page. All summer I typed short stories filled with adventure and heroism.

 

Fifteen years later, the GI Bill was crucial in becoming a USC School of Cinema-Television graduate. Professional storytelling and the written word have been a part of my life for the last 20 years.

People often ask, “what do you write?” World-wide recognized original screenplays, script doctor work, published author, memoirs, luxury brand blogs, and more are part of my portfolio. If you need writing done, I’d be happy to discuss your needs.

 

I specialize in ghostwriting and story branding.

Honor. Courage. Commitment. Those of us with the integrity to do what is right, even when it’s painful, have a duty to step forward and do it. All of my writing upholds the principles of truth, integrity and justice.
