Biography

I'm currently a government employee and volunteer tax preparer for the IRS. My dream is to publish a book that is later adapted to a feature film. I got my start in the entertainment field when I packed my bags and headed for NYC. I enrolled in New York Film Academy in 2005 where I studied Production and screenwriting for film. I later received an internship as a production assistant on season 5 of HBO The Wire. After two episode I was asked to come on board full-time as a paid crew member. I was able to experience set life hands on by directing background talent, and helping a full season of a cable series comes to fruition all while befriending cast members. After The Wire was completed I enrolled in Full Sail University where I received my bachelors in business entertainment. I eventually decided to turn my passion of writing screenplays into writing fiction, a process that took years to accomplish. I'm currently editing my first book 'Blood is Thicker than Sugar' which will be released in 2015.
