Director Statement


I have been asked by dozens of people over the years: "When are you going to write a screenplay based on your life?" The answer is now. SHOW ME YOURS is a pilot/short film that I have written and directed and can't wait to share with the world. It is inspired by my journey as a married pastor who discovers he is gay. Although the story is fiction, it is inspired by my experiences and the experiences of those who went on this journey with me.

SHOW ME YOURS is a dark comedy that follows a married couple, James and Elise, as they navigate James' coming out, while trying to keep the family together and the church from finding out. James and Elise are each on a first date – both with men, and both trying to see if this crazy idea of staying married and starting to date can work. Can they keep this secret from their kids and the church? How does a man preaching love and truth deceive his congregation to start sleeping with men? As James begins exploring the gay world, what worlds will Elise begin exploring and will it help or hurt their marriage?
