I first started thinking of writing screenplays during the summer of 2001, after being shown a series of films by a friend, Joyce Oates, on a visit to upstate New York.


Since then, I had been gradually sketching these screenplays out over the years while working as a playwright and director.


During 2014-2015, I was partially paralyzed from spine and neck injuries. I could not move or work for long, intermittent periods. Each of these screenplays began to "arrive" whole and complete. I have been playing "catch-up" to what arrived ever since.
