Writer, director, producer. (Mostly writer.)
My works include plays, short stories, audio drama, films and a couple of novels, including my most recent one, “Percy & Reggie and the Agents of the Underearth," a light Victorian science-fantasy for which I’m currently seeking representation.
Percy & Reggie Novel Synopsis
Two aristocratic and somewhat empty-headed chums, along with a resourceful valet and a mysterious guide, descend to the center of the earth via a department store elevator to a world of wonders, danger and mystery. Also, dinosaurs.

Percy & Reggie ON FILM
In Summer of 2020 I wrote and directed a low-budget film called Percy and Reggie and the Great Parisian Airship Exposition, working with Portland filmmaker Jerry Wilson. This was a bit of an endeavor as it was pre-vaccine, so we had to observe strict and ingenious COVID protocols. These were in part made possible by shooting the entire film on greenscreen with a limited cast and company, as well as strict masking, social distancing, and air filtration. The resulting short film, Percy & Reggie and the Great Parisian Airship Exposition. won the 2020 Dream Machine International Film Festival's award for VFX--quite an achievement for an indie production made during COVID on a budget!

“How to be Cool is a a delightfully kooky and inspiring snapshot of one man’s search for the essence of something he may not be able to achieve, but which he believes in to the core of his being.”
“Arcana is eight wildly varied and whimsical encounters between mortals and the Fates who pull their strings…explores delicate inner lives and human desires, with enough twists and reveals to be touching as well as intriguing.”
“Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol is strikingly original, tightly written and thoroughly entertaining."
AND THEN THERE'S BATTLEGROUND
Much of my writing work for the past six years has been developing several original series across podcasts, short films and live stage shows, including BRASS, Percy & Reggie, and most recently Nightmoor Manor.
