Script Coverage for action-comedy project, YEAH DUDE I'M A SPY:

"In a market saturated with Apatow-wannabes, this script manages to have raunchy language but maintain its wit and get genuine laughs. The characters and their interaction are strong, often laugh-out-loud funny. The dialogue and situations are consistently funny, and the pace swift."
--- William Morris Agency

Script Coverage for action-comedy project, GEEKS, GADGETS, AND GUNS:

"What engaged this reader was the character work, in particular the relationship between Reily, Benny and Stick. I was so charmed."
---New Line Cinema

"Entertaining characters and some hilarious dialogue made this script a really fun read. The relationship between Benny and Stick felt fully realized. But when they teamed up with Reily, the buddy comedy aspect of this story really started to work well."
---Coverage from Slamdance Screenplay Competition

Script Coverage for spy drama, DEAD LEGENDS:

“This is great stuff. Style like MEMENTO, with the back-stabbing elements. Excellent writing, great characters, off-beat premise, and a good genre mix. A great read.”
---William Morris Agency

“This is a script that reinvigorates the aural component of cinema like no one has since Quentin Tarantino.”
---North By Northwest Entertainment

“The characters are the strongest part of the script. All the dialogue has a strong snap, crackle, and pop.”
----Slamdance Screenplay Competition
Projects Currently In Development (Title, Film/Television, Status, Budget)
BRING IT, DADDY!!! --- a crime thriller in the vein of TRUE ROMANCE
THE TECHNICIAN --- an action thriller
BIG HOLE, AZ --- a sci-fi TV pilot
Dreams & Goals

Just finished an indie feature called "The Magic Stone." Now, I'm waiting around for a couple of projects that start in Jan. One is a zombie feature that I'm all excited about...always wanted to do a zombie flick. :)
