I also copy write professionally. 

I help organizations and companies like the ones below perfect their stories. I consider each client's needs. I capture the tone of their brand and craft a compelling story for their users. I always meet deadlines and execute on vision. Contact me if you have a project in mind.

Not my story, my grandfather's.

Glen "Whitey" Sandberg was a 19-year-old ball turret gunner in the 484th bomb group. He was shot down over Yugoslavia in 1945. He later wrote about his experience as a prisoner of war, but passed away before completing it. I took it upon myself to finish his story.


The memoir follows my grandfather's transport as a Nazi prisoner from Zagreb to Berlin. His journey is punctuated by three distinctive train rides—aboard a freight train carrying concentration camp prisoners, aboard a hospital train carrying wounded German soldiers, and aboard a first class passenger train carrying decorated Nazi officers. 

 

I know one day I will write my grandfather's story for the screen. I know it in my bones. Until that time comes, it lives as a manuscript.


Gefangen: German Cargo

A true account of an American prisoner during World War II. Read an excerpt from the memoir.

Before screenwriting, fiction was my creative outlet. 

And, in a way, I still write fiction when I develop movie treatments and outlines. Here are a couple short stories I've written in the past.

KING TUT

"When she stood up to get off the Muni, I saw through the buttons in her blouse. It wasn’t my stop, but I followed her off the bus."

HELLO, STRANGER

"I no longer conceptualize time or temperature or hunger, or most any other abiotic factor as I’m accustomed to. Not since the spliff, however long ago that was. And I have a selfish yet soulful urge to write it all down."

 

Poetry was my entry into writing.

Though I focus most of my time on screenwriting, I still write poems when inspiration strikes. Sometimes it flows all day.
