I have an MFA from Louisiana State University in Creative Writing with a concentration in Screenwriting and a BA in English-Creative Writing. I taught screenwriting and Art & Craft of Film at Tulane University School of Continuing Studies and was an associate professor of English at Nunez Community College before returning to my home state of Georgia where I currently teach at Georgia Military College. I've written over a dozen award-winning feature-length screenplays, adapted two of them into graphic novels, Uptowners and Piano Lessons, and I'm currently working on my third, Queensgate. I wrote and directed an award-winning short film, Route of All Evil, founded the Pelican d'Or Short Film Festival and served as its director for ten years. I'm now in the process of expanding my creative arts business, Noisy Muse, and creating some new courses for Udemy!
