I am a professional scriptwriter, produced playwright, commissioned screenwriter and comedy writer.

I have experience in a number of different genres and scopes of writing. Every kind of emotional tone, for any kind of demographic (from Christian school plays to a parody novella of '50 Shades of Grey'; humorous pop culture web quizzes to romantic fiction; ****** mystery night scripts to literary fiction novels--all paid work, either ghostwritten or fully credited).

My stage play 'Helicopters' received its debut production this past May at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, produced by Alpha Tree Productions and Runaway Diva Productions. Its full off-Broadway theatrical run is expected to begin sometime in late fall, early winter of 2014. The producers are in the planning stages. Additionally, another darkly comedic stage play of mine, 'Release Note', was a finalist for Best One Act at the 2010 Tennessee Williams Festival. Currently, my original webseries--the single-camera sitcom 'Mental Issues'--has just finished shooting its first three episodes and is slated to premiere online by later this year (details and trailers will be publicly available soon). Also, earlier this year I optioned my short screenplay 'A New Picture' to Clowns After Midnight Productions in Toronto.
