I'm a screenwriter of films, shorts and TV pilots. I also have 25+ years in marketing. I'm originally from Cleveland, OH but have been in Los Angeles "living the dream" since 2012. I co-lead the Writer's Block writers group that meets biweekly in North Hollywood. My short horror film "Synesthesia" (http://www.synesthesiafilm.com) has been in 30 film festivals and was awarded "Best Original Story," "Best Sound" and an "Award of Excellence" along with being nominated for Best Original Concept, Best Film, Best Short, Best Actor, and Outstanding Female Filmmaker (for Director Alison Kohlhardt). My epic sci-fi short film "Reclamation" is now making the festival rounds.
