I am the author and publisher of the coming-of-age book, Growing Pains – 10 short stories about growing up, and former columnist for Hollywood Scriptwriter magazine. I have written, produced, and directed short movies and a feature crime-drama movie titled, The Two Sisters, which received two Best Screenplay nominations from film festivals. My suspense short movie, Road 29, was a contest semi-finalist. In addition, I have written mystery and suspense screenplays, receiving award recognition, and teleplays for a miniseries.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from University of California at Davis and a Single Subject Teaching Credential. As a result, I taught English (composition, literature, and written analysis) to students in grades six through twelve and undergraduates. Other courses I taught are English Language Development, social science, video production, and drama. Furthermore, I earned a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree from Indiana Wesleyan University and a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Educational Leadership with an Administrative Services Credential for leading an education organization from Azusa Pacific University.
