Even though I write, as in I use a pen to write sentences on paper (that might eventually be a story or some collection of points)… or even type quite a bit in my computer, I never called myself a writer, for one superficial reason: no recognition. Well all that has changed, with two awards from the screenwriting competition at The DaVinci International Film Festival (DIFF) for my screenplay, Knife to a Gunfight. It’s a gritty fictional tale based in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’ve been working on the project over a 14-year period with at least 7 rewrites.

I won a quarterly prize and then the grand prize… The Leo Award! The Di Vinci trophy is quite a heavy deal too. Had to ship it back home through FedEx the next day. Even though I took the trip to LA to enjoy the festival, I had no idea I would actually win. Well, I kinda felt something “in my bones”, so I made the trek to the other side. The West side.

I have at least forty screenplay ideas that I’ve been chipping away at for the last 17 years, so I’m hoping at some point, someone will take the next step and option one of these bad-boys. Really hoping this one get picked up, or better yet, a producer helps me direct it.
