SCREENWRITEr & Photographer


Welcome to my official writing website. I have many creative passions, and storytelling is one of them. It began early in school when creative writing inspired the writer within me. Then the dramatic arts lead me to become a trained actor in film, television, and theatre. In the early 2000s, I ventured into screenwriting, and my first script, The Black Dahlia Mystery, garnered me literary management. During those few years, I wrote four scripts during the most troublesome time for a screenwriter—the former post 9/11 years when all movies had to be written safe: no explosions, terrorism, hijackings, or any kind of violence imaginable. I listed those former works in the Screenplays section below.

As of now, I have returned to screenwriting, writing short scripts with some recent award-winning works. And I'm also seeking a reputable script agent for representation for my latest and upcoming feature-length screenplays.

When not writing, I dabble in graphic design from my professional art education. And as a photographer, photography
 is another creative passion.

I’m a native of Seattle, Washington, and still live in the area. I love science fiction and fantasy, true crime, video games, and love working out in virtual reality with my Oculus Quest. If you have questions, feel to reach out via the

After the failure of global peace, and the disbandment of NATO allies, the governments of many nations clash, resulting in a worldwide nuclear war.

As the global crisis escalates, American Astronaut Kyle Gannon awaits his lifelong dream of a mission to Mars while in hiberstasis for a routine test launch. But unbeknownst to him, his dream becomes a nightmare when SpaceX launches Gannon at the onset of the nuclear strike, sending him light years into outer space. Seven years and one day later, his space capsule arrives at its galactic destination.

Rescued by the Akryllians—humanoid aliens in the Astronokai galaxy, he becomes a strong ally in their interplanetary, galactic war against the evil Skrayth regime. But upon the discovery of an ancient battle sword, Gannon learns he is destined to be there—and must try to stop a cataclysmic event, reminiscent of earth’s fate.
