Screenwriting

I've had a deep passion for storytelling my whole life - whether it was writing short stories as a child, penning original plays in my adolescence, or more recently writing short films, ads, and feature-length screenplays. Writing is a bug I just can't kick.

In the last few years my scripts have won and placed highly in various screenwriting contests, been optioned by production companies, and were ranked in the top 5% of scripts on the prestigious Blcklst.com. 

 

Here are some of my original works. Hope you enjoy.
