When I was discharged from the US Navy, I was armed with good computer skills and purchased my first home computer. At that time it was rare for any actor or writer to own a computer. Once word got out, playwrights and screenwriters I knew began to ask me to put their works on disk and, during that process, I’d often find mistakes in their text or story. Eventually I began working for some as a script doctor, then co-writer and finally a screenwriter. Below is a listing of my writing history.

Hot Properties Genre: Romantic Comedy. Loosely based on a play written by Richard Wolf, directed by Marc Baron. On the eve of a Vienna film festival honoring an aging female Hollywood star, her presume-dead, ex-costar, ex-husband shows up, steals the attention, professes his love, and pitches a film to reunite them on-screen and off. This Hollywood satire is a tour de farce for its two leads. UPDATE: The project has gained the attention of an Austrian producer. After a major rewrite this romantic comedy is now headed toward a co-production in Vienna with me as the director. Fingers crossed!
