Screenplay Awards! (6/2019)

Even though I write, 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 […]

Excel Graduates from High School (6/2019)

Gemalism Slate (2012)
