Writer, Editor, and Filmmaker in North Hatley, Québec, Canada
I’m a writer and creative consultant who enjoys helping people evaluate and develop good story ideas; books; screenplays; and website and social media content. Together we can turn good writing into great writing, transform rough drafts into polished gems, and create captivating online content.
My experience spans 25 years working in the film and television industry in addition to the Internet/technology space in various capacities since before the Internet became a part of everyday life.
During that period I worked on more than 50 film and television productions including the box office hit ‘Three Men & A Baby’ and the Academy Award winning movie ‘Moonstruck’; read and evaluated over 1000 screenplays for both clients and me personally; and written, produced, and directed my own film projects. I also taught screenwriting both privately and at The University of Sherbrooke in Quebec; coached over 500 people on how to speak English as a second language; and helped novelists and screenwriters evaluate and improve their work and their confidence.
Along the way I co-founded an Internet and technology company that partnered with Robert De Niro & Tribeca Films; Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records and producer of ‘Marley’, ‘Mandela’, and ‘The Basketball Diaries’; A. Kitman Ho, producer of ‘Hotel Rwanda’, ‘Ali’, and ‘JFK’; and John Malone’s Liberty Media.
I’m always open to discussing how I can be of help with respect to the written word, whether that’s in your screenplay, novel, or your online or social media content.
