Writer Statement

I hereby dedicate my life to storytelling and screenwriting. Why? Because there is no greater honor than to be invited into the home of the viewer. It is our duty to entertain.
I do it not for fame, or I would’ve chosen a path in front of the camera.
I do it not for the money, or I would’ve become a lawyer or dated a dying moneymaker.
I do it for the purest of reasons; to entertain.
