"Don’s approach to transforming my novel, The Maxine Chronicles: Sex and The Single Jew, into a screenplay was brilliantly executed.  From the timeliness of each stage, to the absolute clarity in communication, to the depth of his wisdom, and his impeccable integrity, I found the process to be deeply rewarding and downright magical.

I believe Don demonstrated a special gift of being able to dive into a storyline, fortify the theme, and animate the characters in a way that excites, entertains and educates all at the same time."

"I have worked with Don on three scripts over the past 18 months, and I am looking forward to an ongoing working relationship.

Creatively, he is highly imaginative, capable of utilising both his own ideas and incorporating those of others to their maximum potential. Don is very hard-working - he works fast, but cares - which means that it becomes very energising for those he works with.

Tough deadlines are a challenge rather than a problem, so if time is of the essence, Don is the ideal person to have on your team."

Don is by far the fastest scribe I've had the pleasure of working with. In fact, I am puzzled by how high the quality is; you would think it would suffer accordingly.


Don is always just an email away, and didn't hesitate to open up his phone lines despite us being in two different countries. Note that he insisted on picking up the bill every time, which I thought was class.


Don's educational background, with a Masters in Screenwriting, plus his global travels and experiences, all come through and result in rich, pointed prose. Highly recommended.
