My name is Markus, I turn 50 on March 29, 2022....I am a very extroverted "people person" screenwriter / hard working man in Hudson, Massachusetts. I talk to everyone, it doesn't matter if they are famous or not. I met actors, politicians, and everyone isn't. I want to be a part of the film industry. Since I was 5, I wanted to make my own films, but, I never knew how I would do that. Until I discovered I could write, then, decades later, I found out how I could make a film, I could write one. I am on social media, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I network with all kinds of people. I come from a proud dual heritage, half irish american, and half finnish. My late parents met and married in England in the early 1960s. My dad went into the Air Force; my mother left war torn Finland to find work. They met at a dance hall on the base. They married and moved to the States, my brother was born in Tacoma. I was born in Tampa, 8 years later. I lived on air force bases until my dad retired. I lived in New England most of my life, first in Bangor, Maine, then in Hudson. I have family in Europe and in Massachusetts. Cousins spread out. I used to be very shy before I was diagnosed with Manic Depression. My Dad died before my Brother got married, so I couldn't move out. My mother needed me and I needed her. So I never lived on my own. I always lived with family, only because my mother needed me and she was dying from frontotemporal dementia and cancer. She died 4 years ago. I wasn't making enough money to live on my own, so I had to move in with my brother and his own family. COVID took my last job, so I been unemployed since summer 2020. I was on state money until September, but it didn't matter because I was diagnosed with early stage Colon Cancer in April, I been cancer free since July. It's a very long recovery but I will find work so I can continue on my screenwriting efforts. I hope to move out when the money is there for it. I love films, pro sports, sci-fi, real life space exploration, astronomy, learn about other cultures, dancing, working out when I have energy, talk about politics sometimes, I am liberal progressive.
