Writer (serialized drama)
I have been a writer and screenwriter my entire life, but came to producing in my 30s.
A senior instructor at VFS in the Writing and Film Production departments, I am the author of the bestselling non-fiction book The Dreaded Curse: Screenplay Formatting for Film & Television, which Instructors and Professors are using to teach screenwriting at Film Schools and University campuses from coast to coast.
I am the senior story editor for Crazy 8s, but I have moved away from story editing (which was my primary job in the industry for many years) and back into writing and producing. I have produced many short films and recently co-produced the feature film The Prodigal Dad, taking point on the distribution phase (working with Avi Federgreen).
I am a citizen of Canada, Britain, and Australia. Now that my daughter is 18, I have signed with manager Perry Kimel and agent Stefan Hogan to kickstart my scripted TV writing and producing career. I want to be staffed as a writer on a show with the goal of learning to produce television. I'd like to get my own projects into development with a more established production partner.
