Major Achievements: Studied filmmaking at Ithaca College in New York.
I grew up near Boston, in an area noted for its writers (Thoreau, Emerson, Alcott, Hawthorne) and an appreciation of literature was instilled in me early on. I studied English at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and filmmaking at Ithaca College in upstate New York. After graduating I spent a year in the former Danish island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, then returned north to write a humour column for a Boston newspaper. In the early 1990s I moved to Los Angeles, where I wrote over 15 screenplays and worked in development for a variety of film and television production companies, including Centropolis (Independence Day, The Patriot) and Carsey-Werner (Cosby Show, Roseanne, etc). I also worked for a production company that specialized in Australian authors, helping them adapt their work for the screen. In 2000 I and my Danish wife moved to Denmark and since then I have taught scriptwriting at the European Film College.
