Bio

I'm a working director/cinematographer/writer operating in the low-budget scene of Seattle, WA. I've been writing scripts since 2003, and whereas I used to be focused on excluding camera movement, passive description, and the likes, I now realize that you should do whatever fits your story best. Give me a unique story, and I'm a happy reader. My chosen genre is horror these days. Additionally I'm trying my hand at writing novels and short stories. Should be fun.

    Okay, this story hit me with a fun punch at the end, I must admit I didn’t see it coming and it made me chuckle. For a quick joke it’s not a bad little tale. For greater insight into God and Man, I feel as though it’s an idea that’s been done and batted about for ages, so it wasn’t revolutionary. For two pages though, what can a reader really expect? If anything I’d like... read

    Full disclosure, I’ve studied most of the religions this story discussed, and can relate to many of the views. So in theory I should be totally on board with the writing. But while there are a lot of good thoughts in “Out of My Body”, the means of delivery left me feeling detached from the message at the end. The story starts out with the telling of a specific experience... read

    Well, I keep getting assigned your stories. Hope you don’t mind my using up your credits, but I do quite enjoy your writing style. It’s got a great flow to it and the stories are always entertaining. “The Greatest Show on Earth” is a nice idea for a story as well. The “True story.” line in the synopsis makes it work all the better as well. I’d be kind of curious about... read

    Hello profredsweater,

    You're entirely welcome. I didn't say so in the review but I really enjoyed reading your story.

    BTW, I finally know where your avatar comes from. I spotted a DVD at work and thought, I know I've seen that before. I haven't seen the movie. Is it a BFFF (best foreign film forever)?

    Best,

    Thanks again, glad you enjoyed the film! The avatar comes from Naked Lunch by Cronenberg... so it's Canadian, which I suppose is a foreign film? :) They made a unique film, the novel is borderline unadaptable, and it collects a lot of odd moments from many of Burroughs' novels. If you liked Cronenberg's other films it may be worth watching, but it's hard to recommend without knowing taste.

    Thanks for you review and suggestions for Manna from Heaven. This was just a lil'
    quickie I threw together in less then two hours. I figure the reviewers like a break from time to time.
