Founder & CEO
I started my career like most writers - working an 8 to 5, taking care of home at night, then writing when inspiration hit me here and there. After a producer friend pitched an idea, I raised my hand to complete the project. Three days later the script was sold - I was bitten by the bug and turned pro. I found myself ignoring my day job to write. So eventually, I was let go and had to make my natural-born passion and skillset work to pay bills. Talk about an inciting incident.
Nearly thirty scripts and years later selling every script I've ever written. I became the go-to for revisions, doctoring, whipping stories into shape, and pitch packages for TVOne, Aspire TV, Netflix, UMC Streaming, Bounce TV, and independent production companies.
Now, I am an evangelist for independent scriptwriters. All forms of media - not just Hollywood Studios are grasping trying to find content. They're looking for your work, your ideas, but they want a professional to work. A writing professional understand the marketability of scripts, the collaboration, the rewrites, brand management, concise storytelling - most importantly they know how to work with producers to execute changes in a script.
As most bios go, I can give you all my accolades - oh boy do I have many. However, the most important nugget about me is that I live off what I write and I have taught many others how to do the same.
Cheers and HAPPY WRITING!
