“In Hollywood the woods are full of people that learned to write, but evidently can’t read. If they could read their stuff they’d stop writing.”  – Will Rogersknight-164144__180

Thanks, Will.  Put up or shut up, right?

Here are sample .pdf pages of my work.  TV and features.  I have more.  A lot more.  Shorts, plays, etc.   I write constantly, but I am not sure that’s always a good thing.   I am actually embarrassed by how many completed screenplays I have that are reader ready.  Oh well–  For what it’s worth, this is a taste of what I can do.  For more information or loglines, pages, treatments or complete scripts just drop me a line.
