Bio

I grew up in Dallas Texas in a wonderful lower-middle class family in a wonderful lower-middle class black neighborhood. At age 11 I was forced to move to a small town in East Texas: Mt. Pleasant. Despite its namesake, it was anything but, though I learned much about the behavior and ideological split between whites and blacks.I attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated in 1992 after which time I worked odd jobs in search of some kind of salary. I began working at Dell Computer in 1997 doing internet media work. During my time there, I began learning the craft of screenplays and writing screenplays. I currently am a Business Analyst for an Austin consulting firm.

    This is a long over due thank you. As I began to apply the review notes that my screenplay (The Judge) received, many of your notes and concerns really hit the mark. You took the time to produce a thorough and in my opinion spot on review that will certainly aid me as I continue to work on the revision. Thank you! CT
