    Award winning filmmaker and screenwriter.  I'm originally from Fort Worth, TX and spent the past seven years working in Los Angeles in film and television production. I received my MFA in Screenwriting at the American Film Institute Conservatory and my bachelor’s at the University of North Texas in Radio-TV-Film with an emphasis in Cinematography and Directing. I'm a full-time teacher at TECC West and adjunct screenwriting professor at UNT educating storytellers in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Screenwriting.  With over twenty years of experience, I have been a development intern/reader for the producer of TRANSFORMERS, Story Editor on THE FASHION SHOW, and production assistant on WALKER, TEXAS RANGER.  I'm a content creator and father of two wonderful children who keep me busy outside of school.  I love watching movies as much as making them and stay current on the latest in digital technology & gadgets.
