Howard Marc Solomon is an award-winning writer in film and television, and theater. Most recently, his screenplay LAGUNA MADRE was officially selected as a finalist for the Oaxaca Film Fest 2017.

He holds an MFA in Playwriting from Carnegie Mellon University and has taught writing and criticism at the University of Rochester and the College of New Rochelle. In film and television production, he has worked closely with such luminaries as directors Robert Altman and David Mamet, and producer Michael Hausman.
