Studio Executive John M. Soriano who has helped develop "Patriot Games" and "The Firm"  has mentored me on writing my indie film "Fixing Bobo".

I am in the process of rewriting "Fixing Bobo" and John has given me wonderful notes and great insight and tools to tell my story well. Thanks John, for being a great teacher and friend.
