Eleven years ago a friend of mine wrote a book and I thought it would make a great movie.  So I decided, with his permission, to write a screenplay.  It was then that I found out just how much I didn't know about writing.

Luckily the University of Washington was offering a Certificate Program in Screenwriting and I enrolled.  I was also lucky enough to have two great teachers and during the program wrote my first screenplay, "The Road to Tombstone", which was subsequently optioned.

Since I have written five screenplays including "Little Bandits" which was recently optioned.  "Little Bandits" was a semi-finalist in the Final Draft Big Break Contest.  Other screenplays have been quarter finalists and second round picks in Austin and The Big Break Contest.
