Author Bio: I am an experienced advertising writer who has recently begun writing feature film "spec" screenplays. I have five finished screenplays, and all five of them are available for development. If you're a person who's interested in developing booming, action-packed genre movies, please check out the loglines for my five scripts, below, and let me know if you'd be interested in taking a look at any of them. I'd be happy to pop a .pdf of the complete script right over in an email. I'm seeking sales, assignments, and representation.

PLAY THE FOOL (Action / Comedy) An eccentric musician recruits his old band to help steal a legendary guitar, unaware that competing military teams from Russia and the US Air Force - both trying to avert WWIII - are after his bass-player's rare, vintage gear.

NIGHTBREAK (Sci-Fi / Adventure) After the Earth stops turning, the US President’s daughter fights to get her husband, a Chinese geophysicist in Beijing, across the Nightside’s empty Pacific ocean bed and the chaotic, sun-burned Dayside America to get to Washington - with a plan to save the world. But crossing half the planet is easy compared to convincing her father to unleash America’s arsenal.

THE SWORD AND THE SERPENT (Adventure / Fantasy) When their quiet fishing village is attacked by Viking marauders, the scattered members of one Scottish family must fight for survival. To save the survivors, the spirited teenage daughter and her crafty little brother will risk their lives to summon the village's ancient guardian from its exile - at the far end of Loch Ness.

FRAX (Sci-Fi / Action) After a fracking drill bit destroys its hidden, underwater hatchery, a vengeful river monster in South Texas goes on a rampage against the machines and people threatening it - and an oil company scuba diver must risk everything to save his boss when she’s snatched off her fracking rig by the beast.

KAMELEON (Thriller / Musical) Liz strangles musicians with guitar strings. Zero runs an Open Mike night. When she comes to his show, hunting for new prey, Zero is “volunteered” by a shattered FBI vet to help ID her, unravel her motive, and stop her - before he becomes her next victim.
