Screenwriting judge for Destiny City Film Festival screenwriting competition
Screenwriting Panelist for Destiny City Film Festival's Industry panel
Whether TV, stage, film or fiction, I'm always looking for new ways to tell a story. I write to entertain, inform and enlighten. My goal is to find the heart of the story and give it the best creative outlet possible. I started out very young as an actor, and eventually found my true voice and passion as a writer.
I have a penchant for historical, but I also have won awards in the drama, supernatural, documentary, mythological, social justice genres. I am an avid adapter of classical mythology for all literary outlets. I like to try my hand at all genres and enjoy collaborating with directors, producers and other writers.
Besides screenwriting, I also write fiction and stage plays and I am a story coach for writers.
Coming up, a paleolithic novella and a series of illustrated fairy tales.
