Born to a theatrical family in New York , I started acting at the age of four and was officially bored with it by 24. I went to work at Paramount Pictures and became the manager of the Story Department. It was there I learned the art of story analysis and development, studying with the best. Addicted to reading everything I could get my hands on since childhood, I have to say learning to take stories and characters apart, to see what works and fix what doesn’t, came pretty easily. I became a freelance reader for Howard W. Koch and went on to work with other producers and directors not quite as famous. I worked for Showtime Entertainment for nearly ten years, reading and doing development work on many of their award winning cable films. In 2005, I joined the staff of Atchity Entertainment, where the work of finding the best and making it better goes on.
