Also, these scripts came in second place – first runner up - in 19 other competitions (Breckenridge, Pocono and Phoenix Film Festivals, etc).His short play was produced at the BaCCA Performing Arts Center at a One Act Festival on Long Island, and his longer stage plays won a reading series at Abingdon Theatre in NYC and Ohio State University, and won the stage play categories in the London Film Awards, the Chicago Screenplay Contest, and American Movie Awards.
