  Overview. From my early freelance years of commercial writing, scripts for corporate and organizations, through my work generating skit and song for the stage, writing magazine articles, to my more recent development of film and tv projects, my relationship to the written word is both sacred and profane.

Sacred, as I treasure the inspiration and guidance that I have received from great literature throughout my life. Profane as the real world is a tough place for a word monger. Today the words flow easier, as ones thinking may improve and mellow with age, but the risks remain...

The risks are being merely trivial, obvious, petty, venal. The rewards are the rewards of the work itself. The ease of the craft after so many pages, so many words, so many ideas.


The film examines the role of the police and the rising incidence of crime in Japan's traditionally peaceful society.


I have written documentary film scripts for Canadaís National Film Board, which have enjoyed the usual distribution arrangements.
