Australian-born multi-award-winning Screenwriter/ Director/ Producer based in Los Angeles.
Over ten years, esteemed producers, authors, and individuals have commissioned me to write 25 screenplays, TV pilot scripts, and book adaptations. Highlights include producer Brian Kennedy (The Homesman w/ Hilary Swank & Meryl Streep and The Great Gilly Hopkins w/ Kathy Bates & Glenn Close), producer Barry Navidi (Al Pacino's producing partner), Emmy-nominated actor/producer Joseph Fiennes, Oscar-nominated producer J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are Alright), and most recently I developed an interactive series with WP Narrative_ for Will Packer Productions (Ten #1 Box Office hits).
In addition, a screenplay that I co-wrote entitled POST NO BILLS won the 'Best Thriller Screenplay Award' at the Creative World Awards (2018) and my book adaptation screenplay of Carter’s novel JACK that I was commissioned to write was a quarter-finalist in the New York International Screenplay Awards (2019).
My skillset covers a variety of genres including SUSPENSE THRILLER, CRIME, DRAMA, MYSTERY, ROM-COM, COMEDY, DRAMEDY, HISTORICAL, BIOPIC, SCI-FI, ACTION and HI-CONCEPT.
I also have extensive experience developing TV show ideas beyond the pilot script whereby I am frequently hired to create pitch decks that include visuals, a killer logline, series summary, character descriptions (cast wishlist pics optional) and synopses for future seasons to enhance the potential longevity of the show (which is vital to pique serious interest).
SO - do you have an idea or have you written a book that you believe would make a compelling movie or TV series? I can develop the concept into a professionally written feature film screenplay or TV pilot script and create an accompanying pitch deck. The result will be a viable product that you can send to production companies, filmmakers, and/or agents for their consideration.
