"To make a great film you need three things – the script, the script, the script."

– Alfred Hitchcock


Close to 50,000 scripts are registered with the Writers’ Guild every year. Of those about 5000 get optioned. Of those about 500 are actually sold… fewer than that get produced. The odds are terrible so why do I do it? Because I love it. It’s my passion. To me there’s nothing more exciting than creating complex characters and sending them on a journey.

I’ve optioned 10 scripts or treatments, my movie Lucky Christmas is an annual Hallmark Channel favorite, I have two produced shorts to my credit, another going into production soon and I’ve won several awards. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, but honestly, I feel like I’m just getting started.

If you want to collaborate on a story or are looking for a short or feature script to produce, I hope you’ll be in touch.

Lucky Christmas

A struggling single mom experiences the ultimate good news-bad news when she wins the lottery then discovers the winning ticket is in her car…the same car that’s just been stolen. When the thief learns that the ticket is too hot to cash he hatches a plan to befriend the girl to get some of the money.

Blue Gold

Year 2035: 10 years of extreme drought, water is scarce, rationing is the norm. Twenty-something friends happen upon a hidden underground reserve of water and their bickering about ethics vs. need quickly becomes irrelevant when they learn the government has sinister plans of its own for the H20 stash and their lives are in danger.

The Other Side

Swept Away, adj., participe passé : transporté(e), emporté(e), balayé(e) Paris. She’s English, he’s French. A rendezvous in a tea room. But there’s more to this story than meets the eye.
