You’ve got a really great idea for a script. That’s great!

You’ve written a novel you want adapted into a script. Congratulations!

You’ve worked with a consultant to make it better (maybe even me). That’s great!

But — you either don’t have the time to write the script yourself, or to come up to speed with the unique grammar and style of screen-writing.

Or you just want another voice, or some help with the writing, someone to co-write  with you, to coach you, to take your idea or draft and come back with the next draft, or….

I have adapted, co-written, re-written, and polished scripts with/for dozens of people, from other professional screenwriters to engineers with a treasured story idea.

Past projects include drama, action-adventure, romance, children’s stories, animation, teen movies, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, period pieces, martial arts, comedy….

The basics of good story-telling are the foundation of any genre, any style,

and will serve your project well.

As an award-winning professional writer-producer-director with over thirty years in the professional media, I’m experienced in and I enjoy the process of helping focus your needs into specific goals that can be realized with the application of the craft of story-telling and media-making.

Whether you have a complete draft of your screenplay that needs a professional polish, a novel you want turned into a screenplay, or just the seed of an idea, I can help you take it to finished screenplay form, ready to be marketed.



You’ve got a lot of experience and expertise and you want to pass it on to others, and to be recognized and rewarded for it.  As you should!

With experience writing non-fiction in many genres and styles, I can help craft your information into accessible and inspiring forms, specially tailored to your target market.

Areas of previous writing experience include the craft of writing and storytelling, education, public policy, the military, community programs, corporate awareness and education, and project proposals.

I can work from your own writings or from interviews.

Biography / Memoir                                          Documentary

Video magazines, e-zines                                 How-To books

Business books                                               White papers – think tanks

Literature review for policy papers            Company information and/or marketing films



If you’re in the marketing phase with your project, I can help you craft the Logline, Pitch & Synopsis.

A frequent speaker at the Great American PitchFest and STORYexpo, LAWebfest, a panelist at the Sell Your Script to Hollywood events put on by the Hollywood Film Festival,  I work with writers to craft a selling synopsis for their project. I was also on the Pitch Prep team at Screenwriting EXPO and do Pitch Coach sessions for GAPF.

And our PitchProxy Pros can take your project to PitchFests for you, if you can’t make it yourself.


Free initial 15 minute conversation to discuss your ideas and how I can help you realize your writing dreams.

Fees and timeline based on your individual project.
