One of my goals for 2020 was to get better at my photography. I have done 3 photo shoots so far this year and I already have several more in the works; so I thought it best to create a portfolio page for my photography [and subsequently each photo shoot as a sub page under photography – so please check those out.]
I am honored to be a part of the collection – in Volume 3 Scream Warriors – doing my essay on my favorite horror movie – a Nightmare on Elm Street.

Since I travel so much for pleasure and for work, I decided that for 2020 I wanted to invest in a camera. I am not looking to become a professional photographer – it is definitely just a hobby. My goal is just to take better pictures when I travel.
To help gather feedback I created both an Instagram and Pinterest page. Please follow and help me become a better photographer!
So I have been going through a funk for a bit as things in my life are changing. Vlogging seems to be a thing these days – and has for a while. I am not much of a vlogger. I barely blog as well since I talk a lot about my life on my podcast. But just so I can share my experiences with following my dreams – both the successes and the failures – I have decided to create a vlog as a creative outlet for me.
So for 2018 Ray McCann and I were talking about creating a new digital platform for short horror form content. I thought it would be a great idea for him to have digital content to produce and for which I could direct. So I reached out to my writing partner Brantley J. Brown and asked him to start writing short scripts that were creepy/scary and simple to shoot. With that, Horror House was born.
So now we begin the shooting process. Stay tuned as we are launching Halloween 2018. Feel free to reach out to use and to follow us on the social media platforms. Help us generate the buzz. We want to rally the horror community.
Was asked by model and filmmaker Niko Antonyan to write a script based on an idea he had for a short film. From there ‘Never Forgive Me,’ was born. It was a fun film to write and I am grateful for the opportunity to write something for him to direct. It was also nice to see Rodiney Santiago and Emily Hall act out my words!
The film is now available on Amazon for rent! Please check it out.
Today, in celebration of Earth Day, the Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes had their second annual art show and poetry reading called ‘Art by the Sea with Poetic Expression‘. Yours truly was a feature poet invited to read. I haven’t been an invited poet in over 15 years (if not more.) Attending today felt like coming out of retirement – and I am grateful for my friend Georgia Washington for asking me to be a part of the event.
The weather today was a wonderful 72 degrees with a slight breeze as we saw Catalina Island hiding out in the distant haze. The waves crashed towards as we stood up over the high cliff. It was an amazing inspiring day and I was grateful to be a part of the festivities today!
Also after the reading today I have decided to move forward and being writing my second book. I want to write a book that is full of anthems, that can inspire people and up lift them! That’s why it’s been so hard to write. I want it to be epic!
Finally finished the feature version of the script Axe….I invited over a few of my actor friends, including a few of the actors who are involved in the film. These actors really delivered and the feedback we got from both the actors reading and those in the audience was really good. It seems as if everyone is loving the script. Time to move forward and get this thing produced!
