I am the author of eight screenplays and one teleplay, and my book Rantings and Ravings of a Screenplay Reader is now available through Amazon.
For the past more than ten years, I have provided coverage and screenplay consultation for the various Slamdance Screenplay Competitions; the Final Draft Big Break Screenplay Competition; Budget Cheetah; Creative World Awards; Coverageink; Screenplay Readers and others. I also began reading for Here! Networks in 2003 and then became a reader for their parent company Regent Entertainment.
My screenplay Rough Trade is a semi-finalist in the 2007 Extreme Screenplay Competition; a quarter finalist in the 2007 Screenwritingexpo Competition; a quarterfinalist in the 2009 Champion Screenwriting Competition; and a semifinalist in the Outfest Writer's Lab. My screenplays Rough Trade and Welcome to L.A. both made the top twelve in the 2011 Great Gay Screenplay Competition (Welcome to L.A. ultimately made the top five). In 2013, Mel and the Adventures of Sad Man made the second round of the Outfest Screenwriting Lab. In 2008 I wrote a straight to DVD, work for hire movie for Regent Entertainment. My screenplay Revelation is a finalist in the 2007 Screenplay Festival Competition. My screenplay, The Last Tree Standing Motel made finalists in the London Film Awards Screenplay Competition; finalist in the Glendale Film Festival Screenplay Competition; semi-finalist in the All Access; semi-finalist in Page Screenplay Competition; semi-finalist in Austin Film Festival Competition. My pilot The Dead Letter Office is a quarter-finalist in the Page Screenplay Competition.
Prior to my arrival in L.A., my main emphasis had been on writing for the stage. My plays have been seen in Chicago, New York and L.A. My most recent L.A. production was for My dark comedy Queen Christina Goes Roman and in 2002, I received a GLAAD nomination for best L.A. production for his play A Cold Coming We Had of It.
