Let’s Tell Your Story

Why Me?

I’m an IMDB credited indie screenwriter (and art director) who has optioned, sold, judged, edited, ghost-written, story-boarded, art directed, produced, or directed shorts and feature screenplays. See my complete resume here.

I’m a competition finalist, screenplay judge for a major industry competition, film pre-screener for an International Film Festival, and founder of both Write Club and CineSpin.com (called a “must read” by IndieWire.)

I’ve worked in distance learning for nearly a decade, helping SMEs structure their thoughts and present their expertise to maximize knowledge transfer and learner engagement.

My blogs on screenwriting, contract negotiation, and crowdfunding have been featured, cited, or reproduced by the BlueCat Competition Newsletter, Script Magazine, John August, Bleeding Cool, NoFilmSchool, ScriptTips, and IndieWire.com. See the PRESS PAGE for more info.

I’m also a writer who knows the value of clear actionable script analysis and making the best of notes.


“I’m so grateful for the feedback on the script – I don’t think it would have gotten to a better place on its own, regardless of how hard I tried. I spent a full year doing a re-write based on your notes, which I hope resulted in a better story. Thank you!!”
Jason Nicholson, screenwriter, novelist, Dreamers Edge

 

“…this was by far the most comprehensive and helpful feedback I’ve ever received. Extremely thought-provoking. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for this considered and thorough reading. Back to the drawing board – with a much better sense of what to do now that I have your insights!!”
M. Goff, Poet, Screenwriter

 

“I think you’ve done a great job! I wasn’t expecting myself to laugh and smirk that much reading your take on the dialogues that I’ve read so many times before. I also like the work you’ve done with the characters, making Lana a bit more assertive, introducing a couple of running jokes …”
Eugene Ivanov, Candygrill Games
