Author Bio: I’ve had representation in the past, but am currently without representation, and am not a WGA member. I’ve attended seminars and classes by most of the screenplay gurus including Field, Segar, Freeman, among others; and attended workshops, classes, and lectures sponsored by The American Film Institute; and the USC Cinema-Television Alumni Association extension program. I was optioned once by a major television producer.

I am returning to writing after a fifteen- year hiatus due to the hardships and disappointments suffered dealing with the major studios and networks. Though I had scripts under consideration for several TV and cable shows, I was constantly derailed by program cancellations, story and/or character changes, disputes among star actors and producers, network acquisitions, etc. Now that I am retired, I can dedicate full time to writing, my efforts now targeted toward the indies.

Also, during the 80’s, I headed, wrote for, and acted within a comedy ensemble that performed live sketch comedy in and around L.A. I’ve a vast array of sketch material, much of which was honed before live audiences and is included within an adult sitcom parody I’ve developed.

My feature comedy Spoofs, four comedic tales of sci-fi/horror/fantasy, is comprised of four shorts that at one time were under consideration for anthology productions on TV/cable, and/or consistently finished among the top finalists in short screenplay competitions.
