Overview

An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."

That is a fitting guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research.

Once I embark on a project I fully commit my time, talent, and dedication to finding compelling notes of expression.

Service Description

I write, edit, and assist in the development of:

- screenplays
- scripts for animation and comic books
- novels, including graphic novels
- artist bios
- articles
- e-books

Writing: While my initial focus went into screenwriting, I now engage in a wide range of writing assignments the scope of which includes ghostwriting, scriptwriting, and article writing. My own writing (short stories, film reviews, poems) have also been published in literary magazines, film sites, and in a poetry anthology.

Editing: To date, I have critiqued and line edited novels, as well as numerous e-books, and personal bios. Previously, I co-founded and edited an online literary journal, bringing together different artists and writers, many of whom are known in small press circuits.

Story development: In college, my interest veered towards story-telling, which was gratified by one of my shorts winning a national student screenwriting award. Later, I provided story coverage for a film production company, and now I I help develop feature screenplays, as well as novels. When it comes to story structure, character development, and narrative logic and flow, I zoom in on what works and what needs to evolve so that it does.

Personal bio: I am the proverbial world citizen; born in Brazil, raised in the United States; formerly resided in Eastern Europe.
