Why should you listen to the Handsome Timmy D Express? Check out the trailer:
I’m a Screenwriter and Story Producer with over eleven years of industry experience. Before I was promoted to Story Producer, I was fortunate enough to work on the hit shows Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for ABC and Big Brother for CBS. Over the past 11 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the very best talents and professionals in the TV business. Within these pages, I will be posting interviews with many of those folks whose work is sometimes too often overlooked by people who may not understand that it takes not a village, but a city, to create a show.
The purpose of this blog and podcast is to create an archive of first hand knowledge and experience from myself and numerous other creative professionals. Hopefully the thoughts recorded here will be a positive contribution to other creative souls out there who are also fighting the good fight to share their stories with the world. It’s a hyper competitive business but we’re all in it together.
While I still work in the unscripted genre, I am endeavoring to transition to scripted, as screenwriting is my first love. I’m grateful for the practical experience reality television has given me, writing scripts is my bliss and as Joseph Campbell advised, I’m following my bliss. After trying out several different genres, I’ve learned my specialty is drama, especially in terms of people being pushed to do things they never thought they were capable of doing, whether that’s standing up to murderous criminals or finding the courage to ask the prettiest girl to the dance. In fact, many of my stories begin once the main protagonist has ruined their life and they have to figure out how to rebuild it.
When not writing, I spend way too much time watching Doctor Who (old & new), reading and researching, and don’t try to keep me away from old movies. My all-time favorites are Jaws and Casablanca. It’s hard to argue those picks, isn’t it? To answer everyone’s first question, I earned the nickname “Handsome Timmy D” from my various adventures in the world of professional wrestling. We all have a past, people. But it’s important to look to the future. After all, the best days are ahead.
