To Make a Long Story Short
I'm a Canadian screenwriter who’s been moonlighting as a ghostwriter for the past few years. At this point, I’ve written a bit of everything, from public speeches to promotional copy, which has made me well-versed in content writing, copywriting, and copy-editing. In terms of my education, I have a B.A. in History with a Minor in Film Studies. However I’ve also completed a number of e-courses, attended seminars, and I’ve rigorously studied a number of topics, mostly to satisfy my own curiosity. I’m also a voracious reader who’s built up a massive e-library, which contains reference books, textbooks, as well as a number of other resources, such as Oscar-winning screenplays, time-tested self-help books, and that one erotic novel (acquired for personal research). In terms of my character, I would say that I’m upbeat, hard-working, and mostly unassuming. I’m also organized to the point where it might be deemed excessive, which is evidenced by the fact that I have lists for most of my lists (I will seek help when it becomes counterproductive). Among my laundry-list of goals is to see a few of my scripts headline opening weekends, but before I get there, I’m really just focused on mastering the craft, writing great stories, and finding my future wife (for the sake of my hypothetical children).
In terms of my hobbies, I spend most of my downtime watching old movies, but I also enjoy reading, running, and of course, writing. On weekends, if I’m not working, you can usually find me at the local Cineplex, but I also frequent at thrift shops, book shops, and the occasional coffee shop (I go there to re-fuel). In terms of my likes, I’m a big fan of thundershowers, snowstorms, and the Christmas holidays. I also get excited by huge discounts and seeing parcels in my mailbox. In terms of my beliefs, I like to consider myself a relativist who believes mostly in the impact of positive traits, which is why I practice self-betterment with the hope of reaching a standard that's best exemplified in Bedford Falls' own George Bailey (I know he's fictitious, but he's still my role model).
Statement of Purpose
Why I created the website
Originally, it was created simply to validate my ghostwriting services. However, then I expanded it into a personal website, which would allow people to draw accurate conclusions about my abilities, my personality, and my style. Basically I wanted to replicate the experience of meeting at one of those hectic networking mixers, just scaled up to a sizeable degree. In essence, this website is what follows the handshake at a party, giving you an introduction as to who I am and what I do.
What I hope to accomplish
My hope is that this website will give me a visible platform that makes it easier for people to find me, be it a potential employer, a prospective client, or my future wife. Best case scenario, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy, and worst case, it’s just a plot of digital land, allowing me to connect with other like-minded individuals. In any case, I’m also hopeful that others will be able to learn from my efforts, which is why I’ll be documenting all my pursuits within my blog posts.
Why it’s important
I think it’s important because much of what I do is inextricable from who I am, and so I think it’s a great benefit to be able to present myself accurately. The last thing I want is to mislead anyone, so this website will be a good opportunity to give you some insight into my work, my process, and myself, without a single dose of artificiality. Also, in terms of the blog, since most of my content will be informed by diligent research, I really do think it could serve an important role in helping others.
