I am a published screenwriter and screenwriting coach.
My screenplay "Bang Your Head!!!" is currently being produced by Oscar-nominated producer Martin Brown (Best Picture - 2001 - Moulin Rouge) and Jason Howden (Guns Akimbo with Daniel Radcliffe) is attached to direct. The project is currently in pre-production.
A series of action shorts I co-wrote called "The Cure" has gone viral, with over 22 million views so far. A feature adaptation, also co-written by me, is in pre-production.
My feature screenplay "Frozen Summer" won The Gold Prize at The Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest in 2013, was an Honorable Mention at The Screenplay Festival in 2014, won 3rd Place at The Reddit Screenplay Competition in 2015, and was a finalist at The Slamdance Film Festival in 2012. It's also been published as a book by 120pages.
I work as a reader for Scriptapalooza, Austin Film Festival, and Coverfly, some of the leading screenplay coverage companies in Hollywood. I write coverage for feature screenplays, TV pilot scripts, and TV spec scripts. I also conduct extensive development programs, guiding writers through multiple drafts via detailed notes and phone, video chat, or in-person consultation sessions.
I have a BFA in Film Theory from Istanbul Bilgi University and an MFA in Screenwriting from Academy of Art University San Francisco.
I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife, daughter, a golden retriever, a King Charles spaniel, and a cat.
I look forward to being in touch with you. Feel free to contact me for additional information.
