I was born in Orlando, Florida in 1979 with the rare, yet progressive congenital condition Larsen's Syndrome. Despite ongoing health issues, I have a good education and a degree in Communications while pursuing an ongoing interest in screenwriting and film and video production. Though mostly essay/op-ed material, I've been published in books and periodicals and have won awards both for general prose and, most recently, a prize in a national short screenplay competition. In addition, I've networked extensively in the independent film and entertainment industry, made several no-budget video productions of my own and gained valuable experience on other productions as well as an associate producer's listing on IMDB (as J.D. Moores).
