As a screenwriter, Yuri has written six feature film screenplays as well as penning several short films. He is also the show runner, writer and co-creator of award-winning comedic web-series SHELF LIFE, now in its fourth season.
The two feature screenplays he has written that have been produced are award-winning psychological thriller TUMBLING AFTER, and mockumnetary CON ARTISTS. His short film FAITHFUL, that he wrote, starred in and produced fifteen years ago while living in New York, recently was re-worked and produced by a production company starring him in the opposite role from the original.
He is currently working on two feature scripts, a web-series, as well as a mini-series which is in development.
He has a love of genre films, and his stories usually find themselves in the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy realms.
As an author, Yuri co-wrote award-winning VOICE-OVER VOICE ACTOR: WHAT IT'S LIKE BEHIND THE MIC, a comprehensive guide to working in the world of voice over, using his professional career as a voice-actor to guide him.
His film noir novella TOUGH CITY, which he co-wrote with Keith Ikeda-Barry, as part of a 72 hour novel writing contest, will be available for download this summer.
