Meet the Author

I’ve been writing for several years. I’ve completed a dozen feature length screenplays. I’ve written and published four science fiction novels titled “The Encounter”, “Contact”, “The Submarine Effect” and “The Sentinel”. I teach Creative Writing and Screenwriting classes in Houston, TX for Leisure Learning and I also offer them privately for people who can’t make the classes. I also donate my time to a non-profit organization “Skills for Living” mentoring 15 and 16 year old high school students. I worked with the Austin Film Festival for a couple of years reading and judging screenplays for their “Heart of Film” screenplay competition and I belong to American Zoetrope reviewing screenplays there. I belong to, and write for, the Houston Film Industries Group supporting the film industry in Houston as well as the state of Texas.
