I am a screenwriter, filmmaker, and novelist who derives many of my themes from personal challenges. I co-own a production company with Bill Civitella called Pride and Joy Pictures. Our slogan is "We move people by moving pictures. My most notable accomplishment was working with Dean Deblois, the director of "How to Train Your Dragon", and receiving the "Outstanding Film Student Award" for the FILM IT program at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, Ca. I have had short films on KERA, and placed in two film races. I have completed a 113 page screenplay, audiobook, and first issue comic book for The Gate in addition to the novel. My intentions are to introduce The Dark Inside Universe through many entertainment mediums, including video games, to which a concept has been developed as well. I am ambitious, and driven by creating and sharing genuine stories and cinematic experiences with as many audiences as possible.
