Mirroring the wide age-range of my books and videos, I work best with 1st- through 8th-grade students. My current one-hour, multi-media presentation not only describes what I do as a writer but also explores the exciting journey of how I got here — from being a professional photographer…to blowing things up as a Special FX technician for film and television!

Although key elements of each presentation/workshop remain the same, I rework the language and duration for different age groups. With older groups, I re-tool my presentation so it touches on some of the higher concepts of the writing (and screenwriting) process. But, no matter what the age, the main theme of my show is how the kids in the audience can be anything they wish if they keep saying the four words that I used — ‘I Can Do That!’

I also offer three different writing workshops. In the general writing session, I answer specific questions and offer key advice guaranteed to form good writing habits. For both the comic book and screenwriting workshops, I introduce students to those specialized formats and help tune their creative mindset for writing in that particular style.

$675 per day (plus travel expenses) for up to three presentations/workshops.
