About Me

I have written, directed, and produced two feature films; Twenty Million People and Laura Gets a Cat, along with my team, Devin Sanchez and Chris Prine. Both films took us to some of the best independent film festivals in the world, including Cinequest, Raindance, Cucalorus, Tallgrass, Portland Film Festival, Montclair Film Festival, BendFilm Festival, New Hampshire Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Naples Int'l Film Festival, Stony Brook Film Festival, and many more. Both films won many awards along the way, were picked up for a distribution deal, and are available on various platforms.

I also have a background in theatre, successful crowdfunding, and web series. Previously, I worked as an account manager for a "branded entertainment" company in Manhattan. Along with being a positive leader in any group setting and relishing any opportunity to encourage a team of professionals, one of my most consistently valuable assets has been my ability to write dialogue, scenes, and humorous copy very quickly and very well.

Over the last fifteen years or so doing film and theatre in New York City, I've been a part of a large network of skilled professionals including cinematographers, sound recordists, actors, hair and make-up people, writers, editors, and have been the lead producer of various film projects with budgets ranging from very small to more substantial.

I also love soccer and wine.

I have been in the industry since 2009.
