TV Pilot - Proof of Concept
Paranormal is the new normal in "Geisting," a supernatural-horror-comedy about Poltergeisting from the Poltergeist's point of view. Journey to another realm where Poltergeists are learning how to live their best deaths.
Geisting was filmed as a proof of concept to help shop it around. With a couple of small edits it was able to get under a 30 minute runtime and is now cleaning up as a short film on the Festival circuit!

Script - Black Dog - Short film
Nothing comes between a girl and her dog. This is the origin story of Dottie, a little girl who loves animals. Especially her black dog "Rainbow."
This short film script is the prequel to the feature film "Humangrade," which will pick up with "Dottie" 35 years later; where she is working as an animal control worker by day and dreams of someday opening her own Dog Treat Bakery—HUMANGRADE. Best be described as "Dexter" for animals. Revenge is a dish best served in a doggie bowl.

Golden Script Competition
The screenplay is structured simply, and even at six pages, maintains a three act structure, setting up its scenario, introducing its characters and flowing into the consequences of actions on both sides of the conflict, while delivering a hard hitting portrait of a family in the midst of destruction. The fact that Dottie still loves the family dog, even in the light of being bitten by it when the animal is scared, tells us all we need to know about how she must feel about her step-father, when a bite from an animal is preferable to the aggression he dishes out on her mother.
It is hardly surprising that the title page claims this is a prequel to a larger story, as this certainly feels like it would make a terrific proof of concept picture, one which would allow you to show the economy with which you can tell complex stories, and introduce both tone and characters along the way. This is chilling, thought-provoking and, ultimately, a very strong piece.
