Here are a few of my favorite projects.

Parallels AKA The Building

Creator, Writer (story), Executive Producer

For Fox Television Studios. As EP in charge of set on the pilot of this new sci-fi series, I supervised all department heads on creative issues, and was the liaison to actors, studio, visual effects, and the post-production supervisor. Neil Gaiman has recently come on board to shepherd series development.

 

We Kill Monsters

Creator, Writer (story), Executive Producer

For Imagine Entertainment. My first comic book series and graphic novel published by Red 5 comics is currently in pre-production as a feature film. Comic Book Jesus called it “excellent…wonderfully created…” and “a surprisingly emotional throwback to classic action/horror stories.” 

 

The Lost Room

Creator, Writer, Co-Executive Producer

For Lionsgate Television and The SyFy Channel. The Lost Room was a critically acclaimed 6-hour mini series starring Peter Krause, Julianna Margulies, and Elle Fanning. As EP in charge of set for the series, I supervised all department heads on creative issues, and was the liaison to actors, studio, network, and post producer. The show was nominated for two Emmys and a WGA Award. The New York Times called it “a jackpot for a mystery series,” While Salon raved, “Forget the latest from JJ Abrams. The Lost Room is a cult hit waiting to happen.” 

 

The Iron Giant

Creative Executive, Director of Creative Affairs, Acting Department Head

For Warner Bros. Feature Animation / Warner Bros. Studios. I began my career at Warners as a junior executive, but had the opportunity to grow over the years, being promoted first to Director of Creative Affairs, and then eventually becoming acting department head of my division. I ultimately oversaw a staff of 20 and 16 projects in development, including the ever-so-cool DC Comics properties. Of all the films I had a hand in developing there, my proudest achievement is The Iron Giant, which has received near universal acclaim amongst critics and fans alike. 

 

Tarzan 

Story Editor

For Walt Disney Movietoons / Walt Disney Studios. At my first job in the entertainment industry, I was tasked with creating the story department for a now-defunct animated feature film division. Here I honed the invaluable skill of critiquing scripts, and was given the tremendous opportunity to co-write the treatment for the movie Tarzan, which led directly to the film’s greenlight.  

Other writing and producing.

These are some of the other studios for which I have written and/or developed feature film or television projects.

What's on my desk now.

 

For the past 15 years, I have also worked as a television and feature film consultant for everyone from first-time writers to Steven Spielberg. I love this kind of work because it’s development in its purest form. At the script stage, it’s all possibilities. Having worked as both a buyer and a seller gives me a unique insight that not many script consultants have. Here are a few of my clients:
