I tell stories through film and video. In addition to numerous short stories and scripts, I've written four feature screenplays and am currently collaborating on a fifth. I've written nationally-televised segments for the Food Network show, "Unwrapped," with High Noon Entertainment, and I recently wrote and produced an epic dystopian sci-fi music video for Sole & the Skyrider Band. I'm also nearing completion of a non-fiction book on imagination and creativity. I've developed three core skills in my writing and producing work: thinking, creating, and communicating. These generalist humanities skills are sometimes overlooked in the professional world, yet only by those who are unaware of the radically positive transformative power they bring to any organization. In addition to my own creative work, I have a genuine interest in helping others develop and express their creativity. I pursue this through volunteer efforts, teaching, and screenplay and story consulting. forwords22@yahoo.com
