I have written over 25 screenplays; 13 of those are feature-length scripts I consider to be finished and market worthy. Three of my screenplays made it to the semi-finals in two different screenwriting contests:
- HOME OF THE BRAVE placed in The Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting, which is sponsored by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences,
- LATENT IMAGE placed in the Austin Heart of Film Screenwriting Conference and Film Festival’s contest,
- CONTROL HOME, which I co-wrote with my friend Daniel Merritt, also placed in the semifinals in Austin.
While I began my professional career as an art director and I’ve always considered myself a visual artist, for almost as long I’ve been fascinated with storytelling and writing. I believe that cultivating and improving creative writing skills makes all of one’s writing better.
The ability to dramatize a point with an efficient use of words is critical in writing good copy.
