More about me

While I am committed to making my printing business succeed, I would be wasting half my time if my writing never got converted into something. I have lots of projects (most completed, three still in the works). They range from an ultra-low budget short film script (a two person character study that stays in one location), to two feature length scripts that would require a few million to execute. I'm also writing four novellas, which I intend to pitch as a collection.
