Having just finished graduate school for English Literature, I have been thrown into the employment search. Until January 2013, I was an English instructor at a local community college where I was able to help reluctant writers find their voices and learn how to get out of "text speak." Currently I am looking for writing challenges.

I've written or co-written 6 feature length screenplays ranging from action and science fiction to romantic comedy and drama. I have done several rewrites for others so I am comfortable working with an existing idea or vision. I feel my greatest strength is in fact taking an existing story and adding structure, character development, and strong dialogue. I am able to work extremely efficiently; the last rewrite I did took just two weeks to complete. Some of my biggest influences Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers, David Fincher, and George Lucas.

Hello, I've been drawing/painting for as long as I can remember. I never thought much of or my work, as it was more just something I do as a pastime; but I met one person who thoughts and opinions means the world to me and he refused to let me think "nothing" of it. So here I am as promised, doing something with my artwork. I hope you enjoy.
