    I am a professional screenwriter, editor, and script doctor who has worked over the last few years for CBS, Paramount+, Amazon, and Paramount Pictures. I've written features for 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Happy Madison, and Bad Robot. A pilot of mine was produced by NBC, as well as a children's episodic for Cartoon Network and an animated pilot for Adult Swim. I've also done short-form comedy material for entities like The Onion, HBO, and National Lampoon. I've written faith-based material for PureFlix, Super Bowl commercials, and am the Head Writer for Monarch Wine - a digital magazine devoted to vino and music. Previous to my own professional career, I worked as an Oscar-nominated screenwriter's assistant for eight years, trusted with the editing, proofreading, and content development for a number of major studio projects. I work swiftly without sacrificing quality and am adept in a number of genres. I have a BFA from Emerson College and furthered my studies with the Act One program in Los Angeles. I'm a write-at-home dad and a night owl, with a prolific output that I'd love to put towards projects like yours.

    As an experienced screenwriter, teacher, and writing coach, I can help you take your script or story to a more professional level. I will read your work and give you pointed and extensive feedback or get my hands dirty and rewrite your screenplay myself. Either way, my ultimate goal is to make sure that the story is being told in the most effective way ("show, don't tell" as they say) while still preserving and respecting the work that has already been done. My specialties are story development and crafting organic, natural, and often funny dialogue. Got a problematic script that you just can't seem to crack? I can help. Let's write.

Filmmaking, writing, photography, or podcasting, I believe if you look hard enough, everyone has a story worth sharing.

As an experienced ghostwriter for feature-length films and television pilots, I am confident I know what the industry is looking for, and I have built a solid milestone process for bringing your successfully from idea to finished screenplay (and hopefully one day, the silver screen!) I'd love to hear more about your project, and hopefully there's a story we can tell together... I'm "mysterytin" everywhere. Don't hesitate to reach out (rather than here).

    With many years in the entertainment industry as an Actor/Writer/Voice Artist, I bring a unique set of skills to a writing project. In my writing, I tell stories about all of us that uplift and celebrate the human spirit through its journey, success, angst, and challenges. As an actor, one enters the heart, mind, and spirit of another and shares it with the audience. Embracing another’s story, bringing it to life and colour, and telling it in their voice is very exciting for me. It is an enriching experience for all. Art is the essence of Life. My 1st screenplay, Welcome Home Kelly, culminated in a meeting with the Pres. of Universal Pictures and consideration for a co-production made off the lot. It was then submitted to Columbia Pictures and out of 1,000 submissions was one of seven selected for the Minority Writers Program at Columbia Pictures. In New York, ‘Kelly,’ was performed and produced as an Off-Broadway production. My 1st stage play, All About Sneakers, had 4 Off-Broadway productions, one for 100 homeless citizens. I am also writing a children’s book series, The Gemini Kiid, which was up for a children’s PBS TV program. In my work with the homeless, I took a NY team to Austria to participate in the “1st Homeless Streetsoccer World Cup,” and wrote a screenplay, Ew-Ess-Ah USA based on their journey. (The title refers to how the Austrians cheered for the USA.) I am also am the founder of a small, non-profit, volunteer organization, “The Chad Foundation for Athletes and Artists” that provides heart screenings to prevent Sudden Cardiac Death in Young Athletes and Artists. Having lost my son to SCD while playing football, I have written my 1st memoir, “CHAD, A Celebration of Life – Beyond A Mother’s Memories” which is now published and available online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Shakespeare and Company. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I hope I shall have the opportunity to bring your personal, important stories to fruition.

    I was called down to Paramount off my very first spec script. At the time, Star Trek allowed 50 people a year to come to the William S. Hart building and pitch ideas. To earn that pitch, I beat thousands of other writers with my spec submission. I've been writing ever since. I give seminars at Universities and in Los Angeles for organizations like Colab. I've won pitching contests and excel at synopsis and loglines. I've also produced films for Netflix, Eone, Lionsgate, and MGM. I'm a writer at heart, though. Experienced writers know that writing is not a science, it's an art. You can't rely on structure. Structure is a guide. Structure will not elicit emotion from the audience. Your story needs to. In the few words above, you have everything you need to know about my experience level. Showrunners and Directors believe they can be writers because they've studied how to follow some "structure recipe". Structure is a science. Story is an art. Know the difference.

    I am an award-winning filmmaker, and I have an M.F.A. in Screenwriting from DePaul University. I specialize in script development, story breaking, character development, editing prose and scripts, and researching projects. I love helping my clients develop their stories and find their voice within their screenplays and novels. I also have a passion for properly formatting screenplays and proofreading them. I wrote and produced a short film and web series pilot in Chicago, IL. I crowdfunded for each of those projects, and my short film went on to win Best LGBTQ+ Film at the Women's Comedy Film Festival in Chicago - presented by Cinema Life. To date, I have helped filmmakers raise over $27,000 for their web series, films, and more. My eBook on crowdfunding for filmmakers called "From Logline to Launch" is available NOW on Amazon! I am currently working on my second memoir. In addition to screenwriting and crowdfunding, my expertise also lies in ghostwriting, drafting emails, and developing web content. When I'm not writing or helping creatives with their projects, I play tennis, dream about dogs, bake and travel to new places. Let's connect!

    I have been writing, acting and performing comedy for over 25 years. For the past 13 years, I've been a stay-at-home dad, which has given me books and books of comedic material. I find myself with lots of time in between school pick-ups and kid sporting events, so I thought, why not utilize said time by doing some brain work for other people?! I enjoy sitting up at night, typing, and quietly laughing at my own jokes, but I'm also good at breaking stories, suggesting new plotlines, and championing your project. I co-wrote and co-created a web series for Atomic Wedgie (a subsidiary of Freemantle). I've written 3 screenplays (comedy and horror) and 3 pilot scripts, 2 of which have been in consideration by executives at CBS, FX, and JAX Media. I've also written for National Lampoon, TROOP! and The Riot Act and cultivated a career as a Voice Over artist and just to round it all out, I recently started Podcasting, although I'm still trying to figure out what that means. I have a BFA from Emerson College, and I do enjoy long walks on the beach but only on short beaches. Oh, and I'm a Libra. Which apparently means something. Let me help you!
