"The Crossing" won first place in the Gimme Credit Screenplay Competition and first place in the Latino Screenplay Competition.

Q: Were you satisfied with the adminstration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: Yes, I was satisfied with the administration of the contest. Early on, they notified me of my acceptance via email. They've kept me informed throughout the whole process. I attended the awards ceremony and took home a nice plaque.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: No feedback.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: It's too early to say.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: My short screenplay, "Alone in a Crowd" won first place in the Houston International Film Festival and second place in the Writers Place Screenplay Contest.

My short screenplay, "In the Hunt" won third place in the Indie Gathering.

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: I'm born and raised in LA.

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: I just completed a feature length script about the HIV/AIDS crisis.
