Production options and purchasing is negotiated through the writer. Writer representation will be notified after an initial interest in any of my screen properties has been established.

My body of screen works range from outlandish situational comedies to heavy dramas and social statements. One through line from title to title is an emphasis on the human condition and humor. No matter how intense or dramatic a story may get, I always aspire to find a way to work a laugh into the material. i also feel I have a knack for writing material which actors can sink their teeth into, study and shine.
