The Repair Man
I wrote this script for The Jameson First Shot Contest and goddamn it wasn’t chosen! At seven pages, I gotta say: I think it’s more than alright.
And Uma Thurman would have killed this role (she’s this year’s guest actor).
A woman takes it upon herself to protect an elderly neighbor from a con man using skills she’s acquired from a life she’s trying to leave behind.

The Forgotten Dead
Three brand new completed scripts and a fourth on the way.
A horror film.
I’ve been watching The House of The Devil and The Innkeepers a lot and really digging on the retro thing that Ti West has been doing and this script is a direct result of that.
Recently freed from an abusive marriage, a young woman fights to save a dead wife from dying a second time at the hands of her violent husband.
After suffering years of physical abuse in her marriage, Sara is left emotionally paralyzed and unable to move forward with her life. But during a trip with her best friend, Joan, she comes across an object that changes everything.
At a local flea market, Sara finds a “memorial photo” (a remembrance photograph of a deceased loved one that includes the remaining family members) in which a woman hides beneath a black shroud and a young boy sits on her lap. This mysterious picture leads Sara to an even more mysterious house and the story of a missing mother and child who lived there.
Drawn in, Sara does the unexpected: she buys the house and months later settles into her new home with the hopes of a new life. But soon the house begins to make its presence known. Power outages and unexplained sounds become sightings of strangers during the day and late nighttime lights in the surrounding woods.
And then she meets the dead family.
The encounters escalate until Sara is finally able to piece together the truth of what happened to the mother and her child and the terror that they endured at the hands of a sick and violent man. The story, however, is filtered through her history of abuse and as a result begins to cloud her reality.
Will Sara be able to free the woman and her son who are clearly crying out for help? Or will she succumb to the madness that is happening around her?
