Writer Statement

I got into the film industry not for the money or fame but for my obsession and love for the cinema. I write stories that make you think far outside the box. In my opinion the best films are always the ones you never see the twists or ending coming. When you read my work act three will have you second guessing everything you've seen up to that point. Right when you think you've figured it out I throw a curve ball in from left field that ties everything together giving the audience a sense of bewilderment followed by a moment of clarity as everything begins to make sense. My projects fall under multiple genres but my area of expertise is historical war dramas, science fiction and romantic comedies.
