I'm a professional screenwriter and veteran development executive / story consultant. Since 2007 I've been hired to write or rewrite more than half a dozen projects, and have had several of my spec scripts optioned. One of these films is currently in post production and several others are scheduled for production later this year.
I'm comfortable working on assignment and on a deadline. When I am brought on-board to work on a project, I pride myself on bringing my screenwriting knowledge, creativity, talent and story sense to the table, without ever losing sight of the producer's vision and intent.
I have a degree in film and understand all aspects of the craft screenwriting in particular and storytelling in general. As a story consultant, I've worked with over a hundred screenwriters, producers, novelists and non fiction writers providing craft education and/or story development input. Having spent several years working as a development executive, I also understand the realities of the marketplace - what it takes to attract talent, investors, and audiences.
I've published articles on the craft and business of screenwriting and am one of the contributors to Now Write! Screenwriting, (Tarcher/Penguin.)
I look forward to the prospect of working with you.
