As a refugee of Los Angeles and the film industry, it's safe to say that I've had my issues with Tinseltown, and the "glory" of the Hollywood system. But it's also safe to say that somewhere along the line film, as a way of telling stories and a creative visual medium, reached in and grabbed a significant piece of my heart.

Over the years I've worked as a production assistant, production coordinator, production manager, location scout, location manager, producer, and as a screenwriter.

Screenwriting is the area that most interests me, and is the way that I still flex my film muscles. I also teach screenwriting both in a classroom setting and in one on one customized "coaching" sessions.
