Not The Full Story
At the age of nine I was allowed to take a break from school, cooking, cleaning and the raising of my three siblings while my mother worked and my father worked and went to school at night.
Every Saturday, I escaped to the world of fantasy, the movie theater. I watched the same films over and over again. I did this for years. Then, my imagination triggered, not just stories, but characters that showed me how to weave and explore various storylines.
As I wrote, I created a company where I helped clients with PowerPoint Presentations. I taught myself graphics, web design and film making. I found this useful in visual storytelling. As I continued to write, I initiated a few startup companies, and then founded, Scriptscene, a chapter of the Romance Writers of America (rwa.org). This chapter focused on how to use screenwriting techniques for novels to make them more visual.
I also developed a TV series titled, The Rogues (a.k.a Seized Spirits). With the help of a few talented people in the movie industry including, Ziad H. Hamzeh and Bert Brown, I produced a short film titled, Eternal Embrace. It is the proof-of-concept for the series. At one time you could have rented the short film online but the distributor is no longer available. We continue to look for a distributor. Also, we have a TV series bible outline for 5 years. If you are serious in reading it, feel free to contact us.
Early on as a crew member, I started out in the business working on a handful of short films, I even helped a producer jump start a computer game model by helping to write, direct and design it. And I have continued to work as various crew members, such as a Unit Production Manager/Line Producer, Production Coordinator and on occasion, an Accountant on various Independent feature films.
I have written many screenplays, short stories, novels and children’s stories. Story telling is in my blood, heart and soul. Recently, I have expanded my storylines to include thrillers, suspense and murder mysteries.

Love to discuss it with you.
