A Bit About Me

My first screenplay, "The Secret of Boomer Lake" was a finalist in the category of Best Screenplay:  Buffalo Niagara Film Festival which was also the first competition in which the script was entered.


In 2021, a more recent draft of the same screenplay led to the awarding of semi-finalist in the 2021 ScreenCraft Family Screenplay competition.

Not content to write for one audience, I have submitted work created for the stage as well. F-Stop has been considered for production by theater companies in the Baltimore/Washington DC area. F-Stop is a short play but I am currently at work on longer pieces.

I am also a published contributor of articles on my screenwriting experiences to Script magazine.

When not putting pen to paper, I am a Director in Washington DC for an international News and Talk channel. My media background includes contributions as Broadcast Production Manager and Producer/Director in the television industry for major media giants such as ABC Television, Gannett and Tribune corporations.
