A healthcare advertising copywriter since 2015, I was previously a magazine and online journalist. I began writing TV scripts in 2009.

I grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, graduated from Albany State University and then received an MA in Journalism from New York University.

I joined the launch team of Stuff in 1998 and worked as an editorial assistant, staff writer and associate editor there for four years.  I went on to work as a senior level editor at Ramp and Men’s Fitness. I then switched gears from men’s monthlies to women’s gossip and entertainment weeklies with stints at Life & Style and Star. I have also written hundreds of freelance articles for a wide spectrum of publications and websites.

I transitioned into healthcare advertising in 2015, working on a variety of disease states and brands for both HCP and DTC audiences, and continue to do so today.

Television has always been my favorite medium for art and entertainment, but my passion for TV writing began when I first covered the Television Critic’s Association (TCA) press tours in 2008. At the time I was the Entertainment Director at Star and part of my job was to watch and critique pilots as well as interview the stars, writers and producers of these shows.  It was quite an education and also demystified the process. That experience convinced me that with an inventive idea, creative approach and mastery of the mechanics I could also write for TV. That’s when I began teaching myself the craft and actually writing scripts, which leads me to where I am now.

I live in Montclair New Jersey with my wife Randi and son Zach. My pilot The Factory won the Empire Award at the 2014 New York Screenplay Competition and was a finalist at the 2015 Marquee Lights Screenwriting Contest, and my scripts for 4th & 15 and Modern Family have made it to the finals of several TV writing competitions including the 2012 Austin Film Festival Teleplay Competition and 2012 and 2013 Fresh Voices Screenplay Competition.
