I've written so many scripts that no story intimidates me. I work well with people. I get the system. I write very fast (I have five produced films since 2012) and I'm in Hollywood (also sold a script to Justin Lin, director of "Fast and Furious 6"). Generally, the scripts I work on are produced, optioned, or shopped around by producers.

Service Description

My years of experience writing multiple genres with studios and independents has given me a concrete sense of structure and a laid back fluidity in working with people. When it comes to writing, I emit great results quickly.

Although I am predominantly a screenwriter, I've participated in a heavy dose of blog writing, ghostwriting, novels, short stories, children's fiction, non-fiction, travel, food, you name it. I am a writer in every sense of the word. My clients always feel lucky they met me. If you're hiring me to build a cabinet, you're making a mistake. If you're hiring me to write your biography, it could be the best move of your life.
