About me - current project:
Almost twenty years ago, I was a new Police Officer in Oakland, California. My life would change completely when I mistakenly shot and killed a fellow undercover Policeman whom I thought was about to kill someone else. I never spoke of this tragedy until recently when a fellow Officer encouraged me to write about this in the hopes to inspire those currently struggling with PTSD.

So in the last four years, with a passionate intensity, I have completed a screenplay titled "Oakland" which is a very personal story about guilt, PTSD, suicide, and learning to live again.

Best First Time Screenwriter - Los Angeles Film Awards - Jan 2018

Official Selection - Beverley Hills Film Festival - 2018

Best Original Screenplay Feature - London Independent Film Awards - Dec 2018

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
