“A Diamond in the Rough” will take us inside homes and into personal lives of four ambitious and hard-working young Pakistanis. We see the impact of baseball on their individual lives. This documentary is conveying a positive message about Pakistan and its warm, sharp-focused and humble people—in direct contrast to previous, highly-negative media portrayals of daily life of Pakistanis.

I am writing a screenplay for a feature-length motion picture about Richard Byrd's expedition in 1934 to Antarctica. Byrd spent 5-months while alone in Antarctica. Richard Byrd was one of the world's foremost aviators and displayed extraordinary gifts in organizing successful expeditions to Antarctica. His major achievement was to apply the airplane, radio, camera, and other modern technical resources to these polar explorations. This is a story of friendship, sacrifice, and commitment to a cause.
