I am a writer/producer who has spent the last few years producing proof-of-concept sizzle trailers for some of my projects, including the series SWAG TOWN and CONTINGENCY, along with the indie film, HOMECOMING.
Growing up in a small town in Ohio, my thirst for storytelling was nurtured with school plays, local commercial jobs and puppet shows. At the age of 5, my parents were stunned, when I sat down at a piano and begin to play the high school anthem - a tune I had heard for the first time just a day earlier.
After being accepted into the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts, I moved to California to puruse my entertainment dream. Soon after college, I was cast in several small roles in both televison and film before beginning to write my own material.
My first foray into cinema was the award-winning short film, HOMECOMING, which follows a family as it deals with death and the aftermath. The film was shot on location in my hometown in Ohio and was screened at several festivals throughout the country.
Additionally, I have developed and written several television pilots including: THE RIDGES, a psychological thriller set in the early 1990s; AMERICAN WAY, an opioid drama set in the Midwest and SOUL OF BEDLAM, a post-apocalyptic look at Los Angeles following a massive earthquake and subsequent military invasion by China; CONTINGENCY, a political/crime drama set in Los Angeles ; THE HAPPY BOOKERS, which is based on real lives and events in Beverly Hills circa 1978 and SWAG TOWN, a dramedy with elements of ENTOURAGE, BALLERS and RAY DONOVAN.
By producing proof-of-concept sizzle trailers for my projects, I have gained great knowlege and experience that I hope to take to the next level as a producer/show runner for network and streaming.
