Did you just finish your first draft or your third? Congratulations! You get one shot to make the right impression in a town where they stop reading after the first typo or format issue. Your talent is as important as your attitude and work ethic and it takes all three to standout in a very competitive marketplace. When you consider approximately 30,000 – 40,000 scripts/treatments/pitches/loglines and books are registered every year with the Writers Guild, you have to be writing at a professional level to beat the incredible odds. The only real competition should be with yourself to become a better screenwriter, but if you have any doubts about your screenplay, now is the perfect time to receive professional consultation before you unleash your magnum opus upon Hollywood.
I’m a working screenwriter/script consultant with over fifteen years of professional experience and credits in television movies and independent features. I’ve been blessed to work and collaborate with some top professionals in Hollywood and many became my friends and mentors. In this spirit of giving back, I offer professional analysis of your feature or TV pilot script to help push it to the next level. You never get a second chance to make a first great impression with your screenplay. Why not make the time to get it right?
Remember—Your screenwriting career is not some Dali-esque delusion, but the result of work, talent, focus, sacrifice, patience and luck.

Keep on writing and keep the faith!
“The professional respects his craft. He does not consider himself superior to it. He recognizes the contributions of those who have gone before him. He apprentices himself to them.” —Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
“Having spent too many years in show business, the one thing I see that succeeds is persistence. It’s the person who just ain’t gonna go home. I decided early on that I wasn’t going to go home. This is what I’ll be doing until they put me in jail or in a coffin.” —David Mamet
“You must not come lightly to the bank page.”—Stephen King, “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft”
“Action is hope. At the end of each day, when you’ve done your work, you lie there and think, Well, I’ll be damned, I did this today. It doesn’t matter how good it is, or how bad—you did it. At the end of the week you’ll have a certain amount of accumulation. At the end of a year, you look back and say, I’ll be damned, it’s been a good year.”—Ray Bradbury
