I study film. I watch good and bad movies. I learn from both as a writer and a director. I write fiction based on my non-fiction life and then I have fun creating my own story. I write what I call two types of faith based features. Christian film for Christian audience and Christian film for everyone else, meaning no preaching and I let it fly without too much censorship. I love God he keeps me humble and allows me to be myself. I love people because who else will, but I do have my moments. I am easy to work with when it comes to selling my work but there is hope that I direct what I sell one day.Semi-Finalist 2015 Kairos Screenwriting ContestI reciently won Best Mini film for a 2017 Christian Film festival
