More about me

There are four screenplays I’m working on, two of them are British stories. I am not at liberty to speak more about them, I must finish them first, then the screenplays will speak for themselves. I can't wait, but I have to, as none of my stories are easy to write. I am open for collaboration for new projects, as I have some interesting story ideas that I would love to co-write with another interested screenwriter.
