About your host

I'm an award winning Filmmaker/Screenwriter with over two decades of professional experience writing screenplays. I have written both successful studio movies (Sweet Home Alabama), Independent films (Latter Days) and TV movies, (The Makeover). I have a unique approach to structuring and writing screenplays that I love to share!
