I began my career working in development for TV & Film at Merv Griffin Entertainment, before launching the TV Writers Vault, which became the first website to connect outsiders with industry buyers, ultimately delivering multiple shows for global broadcast on Lifetime TV, A&E, SyFy, UKTV, and others. All of the major companies and networks use it to scout new material for television. I still manage that business, but can’t escape my roots of being a pitch writer, and this has led to a bit of producing on my own. I absolutely love the creative process and the strategizing involved in selling projects. Balancing all of that, I’m also a single father of two amazing five year old twins. I’m a very lucky dad.

What other projects are you currently working on?

I’m very excited to announce the launch of iPitch.tv this fall (2015). It’s the logical next step for our industry, dove-tailing the TV Writers Vault as a video-centric next generation marketplace to connect filmmakers and creators with industry buyers in all genres of television, film, and digital media. iPitch.tv is going to be a phenomenal sourcing tool for industry execs, allowing them to efficiently mine for new projects as they absorb the visuals of countless sizzle reels, personal video-taped pitches, shorts, narrative features, and written pitches.
