I am a graduate of the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting, and I have repeatedly placed in the top five percent (quarterfinals) of the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting contest. I was a regular contributor to Creative Screenwriting magazine from late 1998 until early 2001. On the 14th of February in 2015, I learned that my screenplay The Marsh Wolf had placed in the quarterfinals of the Zoetrope screenwriting contest.
In the mid-1990s, I played fretted four-string electric bass guitar in a short-lived band called Dewey and the Porkbellies. You can hear some live tracks performed by this four-piece group by clicking HERE.
On the 18th of September in 2002, my favorite band (Fairport Convention) kindly allowed me to sit in as a guest bassist for one tune (Portmeirion written by violinist Ric Sanders). You can enjoy footage of this historic event by clicking HERE.
I currently dwell in Ohio with my two cats (pictured below). The brown boy is named Alley Cat, and the white girl is Thalia.
