Author Bio: On November 1st 2016 my scripts held 1st place in all 14 categories of the Moviebytes Top 10 of short screenplays - a Moviebytes record!

Since 2014, sixteen of my scripts (feature and short) have between them clocked up 80 screenplay competition wins, 42 of these being 1st place wins. My work has been produced / is being produced. I now run a boutique consulting service called "Winning in Screenplay Contests". Following my writing achievements I've accepted invitations to be a jury member of the 11th Marbella International Film Festival and also the 2nd London Indie Film Festival.

Emmy Award winner Miguel Guerreiro selected "Early Release" to be his first English language short. IMBd https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt4179068/?ref_=sch_int. On the international film festival circuit this film has won "Best Script", "Best Short", "Best Crime","Best Actress", "Best Actor" "Jury Merit Award", "Runner-up Best Actor", has been nominated for "Best Cinematography", Best Editing", "Best Film", "Best Performance" and has achieved official film festival selection 31 times.
