Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Wrote two nationwide feature films
Produced and directed video ads
Twice won the Written Image award


The short pitch:
I’ll write for your company. You will benefit. All will be well.

The longer pitch:
I write with the soul of an artist and strength of a champion. I strike pens to paper with the might of 200 oxen and birth poetry. Need some words that shake the earth? Well, the first sentence I ever conjugated broke all laws of time and space to retroactively spark the dawn of modern civilization. I guarantee that the shimmer emanating from my work will rouse Van Gogh from the dead and make your company become his muse*.

The serious pitch:
I’ve written for Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy nominees. My latest film Canal Street, starring Mekhi Phifer and Mykelti Williamson, released in theaters nationwide in 2019. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in film production, and twice won the Written Image screenwriting award. As a writer and story producer for Red Guerrilla Entertainment, I wrote press kits, conducted interviews, and secured new business for the company. At Masters Media Group, I hired and managed interns, operated a call center, and gave presentations before large audiences. My experience includes writing music videos for Wayne Brady and the Grammy-winning group All-4-One. Aside from writing, I’ve worked as a promoter with Microsoft, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Genentech, and Frito-Lay, managed an apartment building, and demonstrated virtual reality experiences to entertainment professionals for IMAX.

Please review my website and my resume. Thank you for your consideration.


Sincerely,
